MOSUL, Iraq – Photos from Sunday show Iraq’s once-second-largest city Mosul in ruins, more than five months after the city’s liberation from ISIS.

On 10 July 2017, Iraqi forces declared the successful and full recapture of Mosul from ISIS, following an offensive fronted by the government forces and backed by US-led coalition forces, which began October 17 last year.

Since 2014, some 900,000 civilians have been displaced from Mosul, around half of the city’s pre-war population.

However, the US took little regard for positions it hit resulting in mass devastation of infrastructure and innumerable civilians killed.
