Fear and loathing in Mosul

A lot of disturbing reports coming out of Mosul today as Iraqi forcues continued their march towards the ISIL stronghold. The New York Times reported that ISIL has used civilians as human shields and may have killed nearly 200 people.

The Guardian reported that authorities found “several murdered journalists, the bodies of nearly 50 former police officers, and dozens of dead people thrown into a river nearly 30 miles south of Mosul.”

We can expect to see these types of atrocities as ISIL continues to lose the battle for Mosul.
