United Nations expresses concern for civilians remaining in western Mosul

Tuesday, 24 January 2017

BAGHDAD – The United Nations expressed “deep concern” on Tuesday about 750,000 civilians living in western Mosul, ahead of a U.S.-backed offensive to dislodge Islamic State from this area.

Mosul, the largest city in northern Iraq, is divided into 2 halves by the Tigris river that runs through its centre.

Iraqi officials announced a takeover of the eastern side on Monday, after 100 days of fighting against the hardline militants who captured it in 2014.

Mosul had a pre-war population of about two million.
