Hi, this is Andrea DiCenzo (@andreadicenzo) sharing work from my last three years in Iraq covering the war with the Islamic State. This image is from the battle for Mosul, from some of the harder days I witnessed as Iraqi forces were trying to retake the neighborhood of al-Zinjili.
In the back of an ambulance, a father holds the body of his daughter who was killed as the family fled intense fighting between Iraqi forces and the Islamic State in al-Zinjili neighborhood in western Mosul, northern Iraq. Only five districts in western Mosul are under Islamic State control, but the forces believe the final districts will be the hardest and most violent fighting in the military campaign. June 3, 2017.
Thanks for following along.
