City of Mosul to celebrate the third spring sooner than later
It’s known that city of Mosul is the mother of two springs, as spring time is longer, and moderate weather stretches up to two months. Who knows! Mosul is due to be on a date with important victory in the few coming days, where it will be totally liberated from ISIS.
The forthcoming event will be the most significant in profile of the Iraqi second largest city. History hasn’t recorded a carnage like what Mosul had passed through, during the past three years.
No doubt, the impact of ISIS era in Mosul won’t be forgotten. Hundreds of thousands were forcefully taken from their houses then murdered and thrown in a collective grave. Many families were killed as a result the ongoing battles. Cultural sites and libraries were all totally destroyed.
While the famine is what was never seen in history of Mosul, where people in western parts are paying for grass to be eaten.
So when ISIS will be eliminated in the town, sun will rise again, declares another spring in the city of two springs.
