Description : The battle for Mosul is over, but for thousands of families, the grief and horror continues. Some are trying, in the ruins of their city, to pay tribute to those who died.
In the district of Zanjili, clothes and keepsakes are hung on walls, even cars abandoned among the rubble have become a memorial.
Caught between warring parties who paid little or no attention to the requirement to safeguard civilians, Mosul’s families had nowhere to go to be safe.
As they tried to flee, Mosul’s citizens became targets. Deliberately targeting civilians is prohibited under the laws of war.
Mothers, fathers, husbands, and wives could do nothing to save their loved ones.
Every family in Zanjili has suffered. The end of the battle for Mosul was one of the most brutal in modern history.
Has peace come to Mosul ? For many grieving families, it does not feel that way.
Zanjili’s homes, schools, hospitals and places of worship are destroyed. No wonder its residents cling so hard to the memories of what they have lost. Every day the people of Mosul gather at the wall to remember, but those memories are very hard to bear.
The ICRC works to help the innocent victims of war.
In November 2017 the ICRC delivered food and household items to 35,000 people in Zanjili.
This represents a small part of ICRC assistance to the people of Mosul this year.
