But as the many samples here show (there is one from NBC I couldn't link to here but it was the most interesting one), ISIS is throwing tens of those trucks every day it seems, with only fleeting effectiveness.

It's a dumb tactic but it works if the defender has no means of intercepting the vehicle at a distance of at least 100 meters.

above quoted BBC article wrote:The flow of IDPs [internally displaced people] from the city has increased since 29 December according to OCHA, including 15,942 in the eight days after the offensive restarted. However, OCHA also announced that security in liberated areas has also allowed 14,000 IDPs to return to Mosul city.

ISIS knew it was going to give up the east side, and they made it extremely painful. The west side is something that they will never conceed. Rout the coalition forces or die trying is the name of the game for them at this point.
