Mosul The Yak

July marks two years since it was officially declared that Iraqi armed forces had successfully re-taken Mosul from the so-called Islamic State, following a nine-month long bloody battle.

But today, there are still thousands of people displaced and distressed as a result of the conflict in Mosul and nearby areas.

This is a country where decades of war upon war have left close to seven million people at the mercy of humanitarian aid.

Not even children have been spared from the violence in recent conflicts, such as the 2003 Iraq War and the subsequent takeover and fall of ISIL.
