retaking-of-Mosul

The long-planned battle to re-take the Iraqi city of Mosul is underway.

Iraqi forces, fightijng with the Kurish peshmerga, are advancing towards the city which was taken so dramatically inn 2014 by IS forces.

The likely eventual return of the city to its people will be welcome, but the battle will also cause yet more people to be displaced, as they flee the fighting.
