Faces of Mosul: The self-proclaimed Islamic State formed by ISIS ruled over the civilian population of Mosul until Iraqi forces waged a fierce battle to liberate the ancient city. The citizens who called this home were trapped or held captive as human shields. Wounded and weak, they arrive at a medical triage and transport area near the Old City, struggling to grasp the remnants of their lives. Most who survived now face an uncertain future, forgotten in the limbo of IDP camps. Shattered lives, lost loved ones and escape from suicide bombs and ISIS doctrine, left scars of emotional trauma even more difficult to heal. The war in Mosul is over, but it left a society in ruins and a continuing humanitarian crisis.
