TheBlaze researcher Jason Buttrill is bringing you exclusive footage from the Mosul offensive in Iraq, and as you will see, the action is getting a bit extreme. Currently, Buttrill is on the front line, seeing the fight to take back Iraq street by street. Not only is he having some interesting conversations, and seeing some unbelievable sites, he's in the thick of the action.
For instance, Buttrill recently took some shots at ISIS as he was out getting reports from the front line.

This picture comes from footage being gathered by Buttrill and his team that you will see on TheBlaze's "The Root," which features exclusive stories from around the world.
Buttrill was on with TheBlaze's Dana Loesch earlier today as well, talking about the efforts currently in Mosul to push ISIS out.
"Mosul is everything, right now, to break the actual caliphate — or the so called caliphate," said Buttrill. "If they can break Mosul, I mean, ISIS is pretty much done...in Iraq. They're going to be pushed all the way back up into Syria. They're not really going to have a foothold in Iraq at all."
Buttrill went on to tell an amusing story about how he was forced to take shelter with some Kurdish soldiers, and how one General relayed to Buttrill that everyone there was a President-elect Donald Trump supporter, and that they were highly displeased with President Barack Obama's unwillingness to support them to any decent extent.
The interview with Dana is viewable by following the link here.
Buttrill is highlighting some of his trip through his Twitter feed, which features some interesting images such as an ISIS bomb factory, the device they use to dig tunnels, and footage of the inside of an ISIS bunker.
