Mosul, Iraq's Second-Largest City, Remains Under ISIS Control 1 Year Later

On the night of June 9, 2014, ISIS invaded the city of Mosul in Iraq. After four days of advances by the militant group on an estimated 60,000 Christians who once lived in Iraq’s second-biggest city, many in the religious minority fled to escape an unknown enemy and imminent persecution.

Abandoned homes are now locked up and marked “Property of Islamic State” in Arabic, while women who remain in Mosul are harshly controlled by ISIS militants.
