Mosul Jadiida atrocity

Mosul Jadiida atrocity

Iraqi federal police has published recently a film shows how they target the old town by mortar shells.
It’s important to highlight that Mosul old town is chocked with old fragile houses which are crammed with civilians. ISIS fighters are not based in one place, they prefer the mobility course in fighting rather than being stuck to location. Here, we call to international community to make any pressure in bid of rescuing the civilians that seemed to be victims for both ISIS and arbitrary bombing by what supposed to be a recognized power by international community.

Residents from Mosul have repeatedly confirmed that ISIS fighters in every neighborhood are numbered. But what bogs the battle is that ISIS fights among the inhabitants. The coherent combat of Iraqi special forces or terrorism encounter, have exceeded the trick of ISIS that aims to putting Iraqi forces in a dilemma of murdering more civilians in eastern Mosul. The battle in eastern Mosul was clean, as the fight had been going on accurately.

In western Mosul, last week, carnage was confirmed to be happen due to the international coalition airstrikes in Mosul Jadiida neighborhood. 500 civilians had been buried alive in the rubble. Witnesses said that ISIS had gathered the people in big houses for using them as a human shield. Snipers were on the roofs of the houses. The houses were all bombed regardless to the civilians, left an atrocity which has been described as horrible and relentless. Many international media highlighted the disastrous airstrikes, accused the internatinal coalition of committing a massive massacre in western Mosul, while coalition quickly denied the charge, that airstrikes have been carried out depending on an Iraqi request. Meanwhile, Iraqi government didn’t respond to immediately. Later, Iraqi prime minister has denied the charges as well, said that there are many entities tend to deform the victories made by Iraqis. Those anti Iraqi parties, didn’t say a word when ISIS had been slaughtering civilians throughout the two past years, he added.

Many critics have written that Iraqi prime minister compares between the legal troops and criminal gangs like ISIS. In Matahin neighborhood, house was also fallen down on the locals. The report still unverified whether it was bombed by an airstrike or by ISIS suicide attack. A survivor woman whom she a mother for 6 children broke her silence, said that we were many families crammed in the house. We were separated into two rooms. The front room was for men, while we where in the backward room. The house was collapsed over us. I saw my husband and other 5 children dead. For two days, we were shouting that somebody may help me with me other child. Other women did so. Then, relatives arrived and evacuated us. And also they managed to pick up the corpses of my 5 children and husband. It was horrible, she said.

While the battle is broken, for retaking Mosul from ISIS, the more atrocities said to be committed by ISIS against civilians. Many families were reportedly excused by ISIS on western bank of Tigris, nearby the fifth bridge, while they were striving a way to flee towards Iraqi forces.

Separately, ISIS launched a rockets that inflicted a major damage to Al Nabi bazaar in eastern Mosul, victims said to be fallen in this attack according to Jamal Al Badrani, the Iraqi journalist from Mosul. Eastern Mosul that was previously liberated is recovering gradually, but there is a concern from ongoing murdering that targets the civilians from time to time. Mosuli activists have published on social media that is Mosul heading to the same point of pre ISIS!

One of the most significant landmarks for isis, this building is. What people in Mosul know as a commercial bank, but for isis it was so high in the center so that isis  involved it in their terrifying death ways.. From that building, many victims were thrown outrageously to death, on sight of the crowds. What had been claimed that people whom were undergone the death penalty of throwing from a high building, are those who have homosexual trend. Many locals assured that the victims weren’t gays as isis had been claiming.

Federal police have managed to control Dwaasa street that leads to the most important zone in the town. At the avenue there is the central square, known as the provincial compound. Recapture of this spot, could be interpreted as first step to the old town. Americans have commended the way in which Iraqi forces have fought the fierce enemy.

The courthouse in Mosul has been liberated, the place that isis had used to sue people and sentence them with the obscene penalties, such as beheading and hand amputation, now that savage era is ultimately over. Mosul cultural museum, also wasn’t so far from a morning with no isis. It has finally been liberated from those that ruined its precious artifacts post June 2014. While Sama Al Mosul TV compound nearby Al Hurrya bridge and Mosul municipality has followed in liberation. By recapturing Al Hurrya bridge, Iraqi forces will be controlling two bridges from five spanning the river that splits the liberated eastern Mosul from western Mosul.

 

Meanwhile, US led coalition airborne operations have successfully targeted many isis sites in the town. The challenge that many families that had previously forced to displace their homes, now are all crammed in schools and relatives houses at the old town. In Al Sejan neighborhood, reports say that there is inhabited house which was bombed, locals confirmed that they could hear the children who cry beneath the rubble. While, in Mosul Al Jadiida neighborhood, locals assured that ISIS still launch shells on the residential areas, a death case was recorded, and three were gravely wounded. The train of grief, wouldn’t stop western bank Tigris river, in the liberated eastern Mosul, a family was targeted by drones that isis frequently launches.

The famine in territories still controlled by ISIS has been inflating, as the time runs. Locals talk about death from starvation. Many social media activists sent reports to  Iraqi government in bid of finding a way to rescue the civilians, in time the battle is hardly creeping to their neighborhoods.

When the white flag becomes red
There is an enemy with no morals
It’s no no doubt, Isis

This photo emerges family members have been killed by isis sniper while they were heading towards the security forces.

Isis fighters target every family tends to get rid of the yokes. It is not the first incident, there have been many that haven’t been told yet. Last week, likewise happened to a family in Wadi Hajar neighborhood, they were shot by isis sniper. The family of 6 members were all killed immediately. Reports from the neighborhood say that the family of Abu Qaythar was killed after liberation of Wadi Hajar neighborhood. They were on the start of their long journey towards the nowhere. Just to be as far as possible from the dangerous zone. The rejoice of the liberation hasn’t lasted except the several hours which were murdered by isis.

Also, in the same neighborhood, many disasters and atrocities said to be taken place. Houses fell down on its residents, because of the bombing and the suicide attacks. Isis has driven people out from their houses in bid of using them as human shields in any forthcoming battle to the depth Mosul. On other hand, many families preferred to stay hidden at homes. Despite the imminent death that they may face in case isis finds out that they disobeyed the order. One week, it was enough to turn Wadi Hajar neighborhood to rubble and scraps.

Since the military combat has started, the number of displaced people overwhelmed 60,000. In a time where there isn’t any serious initiative from Iraqi government to comprehend the ongoing humanitarian crisis. Witnesses have confirmed that they had to walk 10 kilometers, before their arriving the closest cars garage, southern Mosul.

People flee famine and fears to no a specific direction, or it might be another famine. Poor medical support is being carried on, and media shortages and lack of coverage the amount of the tragic scene.

The battle is very tough and the dense population makes it even tougher.

Locals of Wadi Hajar and other neighborhoods have been displaced and taken as captives to central Mosul.
There isn’t any obvious source of accurate information.

Reports said that isis has intended to use chemical weapons against Iraqi forces in a bomb cars charged with the toxic gas. This can trigger a horrible tragic scene, in midst of the inhibited districts.

What seemed to be a surprise became very expected as the western Mosul battle that started with a smooth advancing, now it’s confined on edge of western Mosul neighborhoods.

To what extent the story of isis use of chemical weapons is true

Locals from Eastern Mosul have confirmed that their relatives have had injuries by what seems to be a chemical weapon. In Al Maliiha neighborhood, isis launched an shells of fatal gas. Doctors from Mosul hospitals assured that they have received suffocation cases. Humanitarian organizations also started to investigate if the claim was true.
