Iraq: West Mosul still looks like «middle of a war zone» — HRW

Human Rights Watch (HRW) Senior Iraq Researcher Belkis Wille stated that «the project of rebuilding Mosul is a long one,» when speaking in reaction to a recent Ruptly report from Mosul, in Baghdad on Monday. Wille noted that while life in «neighbourhoods to the outskirts of West Mosul» has started to take on a «semblance of normalcy,» the recovery work in the centre of West Mosul and the Old... Еще City «has barely begun» and still looks like «the middle of a war zone.» The battle-scarred city of Mosul lies in ruins seven months after its liberation by US-led coalition and Iraqi forces from the self-proclaimed Islamic State (IS; formerly ISIS/ISIL). On July 2017, Iraqi forces declared the successful and full recapture of Mosul from IS, following an offensive fronted by the government forces and backed by US-led coalition forces, which began in October 2016.
