I think we all have a perception of what daily life must look like in Iraq - bombed out buildings, poverty, desolation, war torn etc but Mark photographed Iraq positively. In his own words "Except for the concussive sounds of 500-pound bombs being dropped on Mosul, there were few signs of war by the time we reached the most southwestern part of our journey through Iraqi Kurdistan. This was May 2017 and I was traveling with a retired Army colonel turned part time tour operator, Balin Zrar our local guide, and a small band of wanderlusting friends to explore an area that only a few years earlier had barely fended off an ISIS onslaught. Coalition airstrikes, Kurdish Peshmerga fighters and Iraqi Army forces reversed the sea of black flags that had gotten to within three miles of where I now stood. We also had three heavily armed gentlemen along for the ride for this leg of the trip"...⠀

But very little that traditionally marks the end of a war has taken place, writes @3liamalek. With multiple armed sides in these conflicts, there’s been no unconditional surrender by all parties that leaves any one with definitive and permanent control over territory or people. No treaty has been signed, agreeing to #peace. No transition to something new and viable has been birthed, despite the endless pangs. And so we are in a period that is different yet familiar, reminiscent in some ways of other phases in these conflicts. It is defined by murkiness, rather than finality. It features a cast of protagonists that includes many bad guys and few clearly good ones. The unresolved and ambiguous nature of this specific moment is reflected in @lorenzo.meloni’s portfolio of work examining anti-ISIS campaigns in Syria, Iraq and Libya.

A doctor at a @doctorswithoutborders rehabilitation center in Baghdad hugs a patient, who survived a shooting, in April. The image is part of @lorenzo.meloni's portfolio that examines anti-ISIS campaigns in Syria, Iraq and Libya. While #ISIS has been battered, routed from #Raqqa and #Mosul, very little that traditionally marks the end of a war has taken place. Meloni’s photographs deny us the comfort of a linear progression, writes @3liamalek, author of 'The Home That Was Our Country: A Memoir of Syria.' The scenes they depict—death, destruction, displacement, exile, injury, suffering—do not reveal exact time or place. They almost challenge us to ask then, why do we need to see them now? #History has a way of smoothing out an era’s rough edges, adds Malek, and so necessary lessons often remain unlearned while mistakes are repeated. Meloni’s photographs are haunting, compelling, absurd. One day, they will also be powerful rebukes to the inevitably flattened narratives that will be spun of how it was in these wars.

I received a picture of her today and she sent Female Voices Of The World a voice message. She said; ‘’I can feel hopeful again and live but I need to feel safe again in order to heal but I don’t feel safe here’’.⠀

Shrihan Rasho Ali⠀

'I was only 14 years old when the barbarians ISIS invaded our peaceful town, they killed my brother and mother in front of my own eyes. My brave mom was holding a gun and shot one of the ISIS fighters trying to protect me but they were too fast and killed her too. I don’t remember the amount of times I was sold, I do know it was more than 15 times. I have been sold and raped over and over again in Mosul and Raqqa and other places I have never heard before. Each time they opened the door I was scared, so scared especially when I became pregnant. One of the fighters kicked me so hard that I lost the child within me and it is hurting me until this very day. Because it was LIFE growing inside of me, a part of me. ⠀

I am now 18, I barely remember anything from the last four years but then there are days I do remember everything and I tremble.⠀

It has been only a few weeks since my family ‘’BOUGHT ME BACK’’ for $13,000. Everything reminds me of the horror I was in especially the ruins outside. I sometimes black out and don’t remember anything when I wake-up. There is a team of doctors that pick me up every other day to the town of Ba3dria for treatment. I am grateful for this because I do want to heal, to have hopes and dreams and live. I know that I will not have that opportunity here. My mom is everywhere around me, I wake-up at night and scream her name, I wish she was with me now.⠀

I am happy that I am united with the rest of my family. I feel hopeful and I even attended our new year after such a long time (Charshemba Sewr) in my new beautiful traditional wear. '

Weeks ago, with amazing support from @terredeshommesitalia, I had an opportunity to return to Iraq and continue work with children affected by the war against ISIS. Art Therapist Myra Saad from Artichoke Studio once again joined me in the field, conducting art-based interviews with refugee and internally displaced girls and boys. They shared stories of survival, loss, trauma, and fear.
At a child friendly space in one of the camps, a boy named Hussein made a drawing showing he and his parents returning home, yet even at this hopeful event, a helicopter can be seen shooting at them from above. As he waited to show Myra, Hussein filled the blank spaces on his page by practicing the English letters he had been learning.

I found a set of secondhand wooden toys in a bin at the Langa Bazaar in Erbil. The figures looked like they once belonged to a puzzle for a young child, one where each family member had a place where they fit, perhaps within a house. I took them to the remains of the Old City in West Mosul and photographed Hussein’s imagined homecoming within the current reality, still littered with corpses and explosive hazards.
An incredibly well-thought-out feature about War-Toys went live on Reuters earlier today. It has since been picked up by The New York Times, US News and World Report, and Yahoo to name a few. There are both written and video pieces that, most amazing to me, include new footage of children with whom we worked in Iraq. My thanks to Reuters for sending a crew to the Debaga IDP Camp and to everyone at TdH for facilitating them. I’m humbled by the attention and hope that it continues to raise awareness for these children and remarkable organizations like TdH Italia that are making a difference in their lives.

Imagine then, she adds, what it means for the #Syrians and #Iraqis most in need of and most denied resolution and whatever relief it can offer. @lorenzo.meloni photographed these two scenes in April: a destroyed bridge between the eastern and western sections of #Mosul, and a scar from a surgery to remove shrapnel from a car bomb at a @doctorswithoutborders clinic in Baghdad.

From @nytmag | The Pentagon’s failed campaigns in Iraq and Afghanistan left a generation of soldiers with little to fight for but one another. In early October, the Afghan war will be 17 years old, a milestone that has loomed with grim inevitability as the fighting has continued across 3 presidential administrations. With this anniversary, prospective recruits born after the terrorist attacks of 2001 will be old enough to enlist. And Afghanistan is not the sole enduring American campaign. The war in Iraq, which started in 2003, has resumed and continues in a different form over the border in Syria, where the American military also has settled into a string of ground outposts without articulating a plan or schedule for a way out. The U.S. has at various times declared success in its many campaigns — in late 2001; in the spring of 2003; in 2008; in the short-lived withdrawal from Iraq late in 2011; and in its allies’ recapture of the ruins of Ramadi, Falluja, Mosul and Raqqa from ISIS. That terrorist organization, formed in the crucible of occupied Iraq, did not even exist when the wars to defeat terrorism started. And still the wars grind on. Across these years, hundreds of thousands of young men and women signed on in good faith and served in the lower and middle ranks. They did not make policy. They lived within it. Our staff photographer Tyler Hicks took these photos while on #nytassignment in 2009. Visit the link to read more.

A year ago this week Iraqi forces advanced on the final few city blocks held by ISIS. Civilians, besieged for months with little food or water, were finally able to escape. Beneath the summer heat a seemingly never-ending stream of people stumbled through the dust and rubble of what remained of Mosul's Old City. I often think back on this week as being some of the most brutal parts of that battle and my mind lands on moments like this. Young children being carried to safety by their friends and family. These moments play out over and over again across the world for people amid incredible struggle. This month has again pointed to the suffering of defenseless youth as my own government treats migrant children and their families as criminals while at the same time slamming the door on many others around the world. The hatred and disregard aimed down at the helpless from the White House disgusts me. Bravery isn’t going to war or aiming a weapon. It’s standing up for the innocent and defenseless. It’s running through unknown danger to save someone else. It sure as fuck isn’t turning someone away when they ask for help. #noban #nowall (Image: Cengiz Yar/UNHCR)

I remember the last time I stood at the border.⠀

There were heavily armed soldiers. We were steps away from active violence.⠀

Some of the people coming toward us posed a very real threat. There was good reason to be wary.⠀

There were kids all around, too. Clearly vulnerable, they’d been running for their lives. Some didn’t even have shoes.⠀

On this border, I saw women and children treated with respect, not separated from their mothers.⠀

I saw kids honored, loved, celebrated, cared for. It was beautiful.⠀

This was NOT the US-Mexico border. This was the border between ISIS and the rest of the world during the battle for Mosul.⠀

Even in the middle of an active war zone, women and children were treated with respect.⠀

Know this: If it’s possible to secure a border between an violent enemy and its neighbor without sacrificing human dignity, then it’s possible where you live, too.⠀

We’ve heard from so many of you in recent days, asking how we can show up. What I can tell you right now is that we are listening. We are learning. The frontlines aren’t just in Syria or Iraq. The frontlines are where we live.⠀

The need doesn’t change because of one executive order—there are still many, many families on the run or stuck in limbo.⠀

We don’t know yet what the next step is. But please know: we are in this.⠀

Back then I was a 14 year old teenager feasting on a diet of Rush Limbaugh, Fox News, and Evangelical Christianity. I was made to fear and hate the Middle East through the lies and manipulation of the adults and propaganda that raised me. I was taught that Iraq was an evil in this world bent on destroying America, God’s nation, and our fight was a righteous crusade. I cheered on the airstrikes hitting Baghdad that streamed through the tube TV setup in our poor New Jersey apartment. I had many friends leave and go to war in Iraq and have met many others since with lasting scars from their time here. As the years and bloodshed dragged on the nation descended further and further into chaos. The effects of that invasion are still playing out now and with them Americans are still dying here. The countless Iraqi lives lost and continued unrest and violence have torn apart and changed the fabric of Iraqi society. The most recent war against ISIS, who’s rise to power can be directly linked to the handling of post-invasion Iraq, has also driven up the death toll and will have long lasting repercussions that it seems many are ignoring. Scarcely a day goes by where I don’t think about the great irony of my life now and my younger self living in fear of a people and place I knew next to nothing about. As I sit here in Baghdad today, I think about those liars and their deceit and wonder how life could’ve been different for people here and back home. I think also about the men and women still peddling their hate and fear from comfy office chairs and wonder what teenagers might be sitting at home fearfully believing them.

This is not just a beautiful picture of a woman that passes by our instagram feed and we forget about right after we scroll down. I want you to look at this picture for at least a minute and send her all your good thoughts and prayers. The woman in this picture has a name and just like you and me deserves a beautiful LIFE.⠀

She is the victim of the dark world of warlords and their billion dollar arms deals, the world failing millions of innocent people where so called ISIS members around the world including my beloved country the Netherlands, invaded our lands and brutally slaughtered innocent lives. I share these stories with the hope that it will inspire you and realise that we are all connected, that no matter from where you are looking at this picture you will realise that we have to fight for her LIFE, for PEACE together by starting to notice HER and HER story.⠀

Meet Majida Sabria born in 1974 in Kocho near Sinjar, ISIS killed her husband and oldest Son and took her daughter. ⠀

She now lives in Germany and picking up her life like a mother does.⠀

@Kermanjhoshyar - BBC Filmmaker and photographer: ⠀
Kirkuk - 2015⠀

A group of women who were no use to ISIS were freed and this mother was among those “Useless Women”. They were in a very bad condition, distressed, traumatised and in shock. My eyes caught the face of a crying mother and a boy comforting her. As I looked closer he was trying to cover her tears so that no one would see her tears and I found out she was his MOTHER. ⠀

As a war photographer covering the war against ISIS in Iraq I have seen scenes that should not be told, not here, not now.⠀

I have seen women losing their children while running between ISIS and Iraqi forces in Mosul and yet remaining strong.⠀

I was inspired by how this mother was so kind and helpful to everyone. Trying to help the rest of the women while she was still in shock. I have learned that women and mothers in particular carry a very deep strength and love that no matter how much violence they experience, it only awakens life, care and love within them.

The destroyed Old City of Mosul, Iraq as seen from the east bank of the Tigris River. The cost of the war against ISIS can be seen across Iraq. The damage done to cities is immense with neighborhoods, like this one in Mosul, reduced almost completely to rubble. Power plants, water wells, bridges, hospitals, and other infrastructure essential for society to function were damaged or completely destroyed. As Iraqis try rebuilding, they face the incredible obstacle of unexploded ordinance left behind by the battle. ISIS revolutionized improves explosive devices and turned areas under their control into assembly line bomb factories. They left countless boobytraps, land mines, and carbombs in their wake. The fight against them as well, scattered munitions like mortars, grenades, and bombs dropped by the US-led coalition. Brave men and women from Iraq and the international community are working to clear these explosives so Iraqi society can continue. Earlier this year I partnered with @un_mineaction to document their demining efforts and the men and women helping to rebuild the country after ISIS. Some of that work opens tomorrow at @photovillenyc under the Brooklyn Bridge in New York in an exhibition titled “Safe Home”. I’ll be posting excerpts from that project here over the next week.

Two years ago Christians were being starved, raped, and murdered by ISIS, a Caliphate that was sweeping the world unchecked. I would like to thank our President who gave authority to Secretary Mattis to execute total war upon the enemy. The men and women who carried out the missions and especially those who have their lives. To the families who lost their loved ones you can take solace that you raised a man who would face evil toe to toe and lay down his life to stop a holocaust. This war, that the media doesn’t report because it might flatter the President,is the cleanest most righteous fight since the days when Jews rode trains to Dachua. Proud to be an American ・・・

This is a Christian cross in a Christian city built to welcome them back after isis ran them out. Paid for by Muslims. There is a real enemy and he is the evil one everyone else on the other side is a prisoner of war. -VictorMarx.com #faith #iraq #aljazeera #nprnews

WHY I SPENT MOTHERS' DAY IN MOSUL, IRAQ “My dad, my brother and my husband were all killed by ISIS.” At fifteen she got married. At eighteen she was a widow, the mother of an infant, and caretaker for her widowed mother.
For two and a half years she’d lived under ISIS control in east Mosul, Iraq. When her community was freed from ISIS in November, 2016, a new future opened up to her.
But what kind of future awaited a traumatized and grieving teenage mother in a neighborhood wrecked by war?
Fortunately, my friends at The Preemptive Love Coalition saw beyond her external situation to the resilient spirit inside her. They provided funding for her to open a small cosmetics shop.
Bullet holes still marked the facades of nearby buildings. Crumbled concrete and twisted metal left by months of shelling was still being cleared away.
But on the May day on which I visited the cosmetics shop, the streets were filled with shoppers and business was booming.
After years of brutal oppression, the civilians of east Mosul were eager to return to the life they’d known before ISIS.
And a young shopkeeper—along with her mother and her child—were looking with hope toward the future.

Tens of thousands of children in Iraq lost their parents under ISIS rule or the battle against it. Nour, a 10-year-old whose favorite game used to be pretending to be a princess, is one of them. She stopped playing make-believe last July, after her family and neighbors tried to escape Mosul’s besieged Old City, where ISIS was making its last stand. As they dodged bullets, an ISIS suicide bomber ran at them. Nour’s parents, her little sister, 6 cousins, 6 aunts and uncles and her grandmother were killed. Her surviving relatives, a great-aunt and her 21-year-old married sister, found her at a field hospital. Her great-aunt spent the family’s meager life savings on 2 operations to help Nour regain the use of her arms. But this spring, when her family enrolled her in school, Nour’s classmates and teachers laughed at the claw-like appearance of her burned hands. Now, Nour spends her day helping with chores. Her favorite toy is a stuffed Mickey Mouse. She prefers that over pretty dolls. “It’s hard to pretend like that,” said Nour, who was photographed by @andreadicenzo. “I’m not beautiful like them.” | Children like Nour are at risk of being forgotten casualties of the war in Iraq.

📷 DESPAIR
A little girl holds her head in her hands amid ruins of the Old City in West Mosul, Iraq on July 6, 2017. Most who survived now face an uncertain future, forgotten in the limbo of IDP (Internally Displaced Persons) camps. The scars of emotional trauma are even more difficult to heal than the physical wounds. Their lives are shattered, they lost loved ones and all personal belongings, while surviving day to day, in non-stop terror, between suicide bombs and repressive ISIS doctrine for three long years. The war in Mosul is over, but it left a society in ruins and a continuing humanitarian crisis for these victims facing an uncertain future.

Alla Hoshiar⠀

I am a writer and filmmaker and I have been covering the war against ISIS and I almost lost my left arm while covering the war. This has not stopped me from filming to share the ugliness of war. I am proud that one of our films won the peace award in Venice. ⠀

In my recent visits to “Snunia” (Sinjar Area) I had to pass by ruins to talk to the people about living conditions. I saw an 18 year old girl named Shrihan that weighed barely 33 Kilos, I noticed her silent in a corner and wanted to hear her story.⠀

Shrihan talked to us about her abduction by ISIS, she was trembling and said ‘’I was sold over 15 times in Mosul, Raqqa’’ and other places.⠀

As a man I have witnessed dark war scenes, women I met from Shargat, near Tikrit - Iraq. She beheaded an ISIS fighter to eat his head as revenge for killing her husband. I was not shocked but when I heard how Shrihan was raped, I felt ashamed as a man. ‘’How can a man force a girl to have sex with him in such a inhuman way?’’⠀

I asked her to stand in the light for a photo and she asked her sister if she looked beautiful, this made me very emotional. She started to light up and she no longer needed the light from the window. After everything she was still like any other 18 year old girl who wanted to look beautiful.⠀

When I think of Shrihan I believe we have to feel grateful for what we have in life.⠀

Women have been stripped from their human rights for centuries. I ask women in my society to feel grateful and live life to the fullest despite the limitations. ⠀

We are experiencing a wave of women’s oppression in our society and if you look at the west they have passed this by resisting cultural and religious believes. Men must stand by women to fight, but it is up to women to not give up.⠀

Do you expect that by resisting and aspiring social change you won’t be criticized? Of course you will, YOU have to take risks to achieve rights for women. ⠀

Look at you Dashni, compare yourself to 2008, how you was treated unfairly by society, look at you now, you have people who appreciate you. ⠀

I know that you struggle but you are here and you have a battle to win, RESIST

A year ago this week Iraqi forces advanced on the final few city blocks held by ISIS. Civilians, besieged for months with little food or water, were finally able to escape. Beneath the summer heat a seemingly never-ending stream of people stumbled through the dust and rubble of what remained of Mosul's Old City. I often think back on this week as being some of the most brutal parts of that battle and my mind lands on moments like this. Young children being carried to safety by their friends and family. These moments play out over and over again across the world for people amid incredible struggle. This month has again pointed to the suffering of defenseless youth as my own government treats migrant children and their families as criminals while at the same time slamming the door on many others around the world. The hatred and disregard aimed down at the helpless from the White House disgusts me. Bravery isn’t going to war or aiming a weapon. It’s standing up for the innocent and defenseless. It’s running through unknown danger to save someone else. It sure as fuck isn’t turning someone away when they ask for help. #noban #nowall (Image: Cengiz Yar/UNHCR)
