Blood, dirt and bombs: Battle for Mosul is fierce urban war | Reuters

By Michael Georgy | MOSUL, Iraq MOSUL, Iraq As Iraqi troops battled to gain ground a few streets away, soldiers in the Mosul district of Intisar wrapped a wounded and bloodied colleague in a blanket, lifted him off his Humvee, and sped him away from the frontlines for treatment.Heavy shooting and mortar fire shook the neighbourhood, which the soldiers were trying to recapture from Islamic State militants who have held Mosul for more than two years.Fighting their way into the city this week, soldiers have gained a foothold in the eastern districts. A trip to the battlefront by Reuters journalists, one of the first visits into Mosul itself, showed the scale of the battle they face.The thud of explosions boomed across the city streets and black smoke rose from an area about five blocks away. Many buildings were covered in a layer of black soot and one yellow house had a hole blown into it #India #Environment #Middle East #science #Europe #Education #crisis
