Signs of strife More than one year af­ter Daesh de­feat, Mo­sul, cit­i­zens still strug­gling

The Daily Star (Lebanon) - - REGION -

A am­putee uses crutches to walk on a de­bris-strewn street in the old neigh­bor­hood of the north­ern Iraqi city of Mo­sul. Iraqi forces an­nounced the “lib­er­a­tion” of the coun­try’s sec­ond city on July 10, 2017, af­ter a bloody nine-month of­fen­sive to end the three-year rule of Daesh (ISIS) there. Scores of peo­ple are still dis­placed in and around Mo­sul as parts of the city lie in ru­ins. –
