The Liberation of Mosul

After hearing rumors of two females entering liberated territory with bombs strapped to their waists, ISOF CTS troops watch as newly liberated Mosul residents make their way through the Old City neighborhood on July 2, 2017. Days after the Iraqi government declared the Islamic State was defeated in Mosul, heavy fighting persisted while newly liberated residents still fled the Old City neighborhood in droves. With temperatures reaching 115 degrees, many needed medical attention for heat exhaustion.
