Iraq: Islamic State inside Mosul - BBC News

  • 🎬 Video
  • ℹ️ Description
It's a city where entire districts have been emptied of people and where ancient sites have been systematically destroyed. Now, a year after Iraq's second city Mosul was captured by the militant group calling themselves Islamic State, we have an exclusive and unique investigation into how deeply entrenched the terror group is in the city. The BBC looks at how the militants control most aspects of daily life, including dress codes and schools, which residents say are used to indoctrinate children. And as this report shows, many are living in fear of being punished according to the group's extreme interpretation of Islamic law.

Sadly, religion will stay with them even when ISIS is gone, and it will happen all over again. Sucks, wish they could get away from the oppression!

Iraq's second city is tightly controlled by its new rulers, ISIS. With footage of life in Mosul, Yalda Hakim tells the story a city run by Islamic State.

the US should supply the Kurds with some hardcore gear like suppressors and all that so they can make some big badass Operation inside Raqqa or Mosul.

Thanks to almighty Allah finally Israeli backed Isis is defeated in Syria and Iraq. Allahu Akbar.



I live in a city that didn't have a war since 1821, but I have never seen buildings and infrastructure how I see in this video about Mosul. I thought Mosul was very poor, but not.

Is there a video version? Exclusive footage in an audio only presentation is a bit strange.

Why suddenly everyone is making a fuss about how IS treats women!? Full cover, not going out without a male etc. are the exact same rules applied in KSA.

and also if their ideology is so strong and compete with democracy then why should not they give citizens chance to choose their idology. do not force to take your idology if it is so strong and beneficial for people then they accept it by heart not by force.

There was no Shia sites in Mosul! And the arab sunni majority is persecuted as well if not the most! I come from mosul and have relatives there!

As the Iraqi journalist said; There was no law in Mosul before IS came. Iraq since 2003 has been a mess, this is the result of American imperialism. Together with British imperialism, the Americans came and looted. Iraqi oil fields were privatized and then sold to western oil companies. While they got rich, the majority of all Iraqi's suffered from poverty. Capitalism destroyed Iraq must like it destroyed Russia and Eastern Europe. The only alternative to this mess is socialism!
