As Iraqi forces retake more land on their march to Mosul, they find devastation. Mass graves are left in the wake of ISIS everywhere the Iraqi forces go. “It is the horrible symbol of what has been for decades a gut-wrenching constant of Iraqi life: the disappearance of loved ones into the machinery of despotism.” ISIS has continued the violent tyranny that began with Saddam Hussein. Mass killings are again normal, particularly of policemen.

Iraqi families are searching for the remains of their loved ones. Sadly, with so many individuals dead, there are many families left not knowing what happened to their loved ones. I’d like to say there’s some kind of silver lining to this current event, but there isn’t. This is a dark time for the people of Iraq. I only hope Iraqi forces can retake all of Mosul soon and end ISIS tyranny.
