Rubble, debris and body parts covered the streets of Mosul’s recently recaptured Old City, footage filmed Thursday shows.

The aftermath resulting from the long battle against militants of the self-proclaimed Islamic State (IS; formerly ISIL/ISIS) ranged from destroyed building facades to burnt body parts on the streets, with signs pointing to “graveyards for IS members” pitched between heaps of debris.

On 10 July 2017, Iraqi forces declared the full recapture of Mosul from IS, following an offensive fronted by the Iraqi army and backed by US-led coalition forces that began October 17 last year.
