Mosul's residents suffer mental, traumatic impacts due to war

Mosul's residents suffer mental, traumatic damages due to war
Mosul's residents suffer from trauma, grief, and shock following the war to retake the city from ISIS terrorists, local media reported on Saturday.

The military operations, launched by joint forces to eradicate ISIS, left the residents in poor psychological conditions due to the countless fatalities and massive destruction in the infrastructure that swept across every nook and cranny of the city. 

Women, kids, and old men have been negatively affected where some of them cry for no reason while others prevented from sleeping for several days. 

According to the organization of Doctors Without Borders (MSF), the population of Mosul has endured huge suffering in the war to retake the northern Iraqi city from ISIS terrorists and trauma cases among civilians are sharply rising in the last stages of the battle.

In June 2014, ISIS captured large swathes of Iraq and Syria. But the US-led coalition launched a campaign to oust the terror group of the two countries.
