NewsCO.com.au – Mass grave found to west of Mosul

February 26, 2017

Zahed al-Jatouni, a Nineveh provincial government official, said the corpses belonged to civilians who were killed by landmine blasts when they were attempting to flee the western area of Iraq’s second-largest city. Mosul has been under the control of Islamic State since June 2014.

The Iraqi government, along with allied militias, recently launched a military operation to liberate the neighbourhoods on the western bank of the Tigris river, after retaking the eastern districts at the end of January.
