Explosives 'forcing Mosul's civilians to stay away from home'

Mosul's ill-fated displaced

Despite ISIS's wiping out from Mosul, displaced persons are fearful of return due to the explosive devices and mines planted by the terror group there.

Many of Mosul's displaced persons are still stranded in camps, according to official reports.

And those who have the pluck to return compromise their lives that they may suddenly lose due to the rampant explosives.

Children in Mosul are guiding the UN mission to the places where the explosive devices are planted.

Moreover, reports say those children 'carry some of these explosive devices and take them to the UN staffers.

Tallies show that more than 17, 00 people were killed due to the explosive charges since the beginning of the UN-sponsored campaign to rid the city of explosives in October 2016.

Insiders say this campaign will be prolonged.

Mosul has been freed from the clutches of ISIS terrorists later last June. Prime Minister Haider al-Abadi declared the city as an ISIS-free spot in Iraq.
