Humanity Under Attack In Mosul, Red Cross Says

Recommended Posts

Humanity Under Attack In Mosul, Red Cross Says:

5 July 2017

The fog of war once again begins to sweep over Mosul General Hospital, with an announcement that crackles out of the loudspeakers.

An urgent, desperate warning repeated over and over again: "Mass casualty, mass casualty."

The latest civilian victims of the chaos in Mosul are on their way here. Forty-five Iraqis needing urgent medical care after yet more violence in the Old City.

I am surrounded by medics, who are preparing to help. But all I can do is grip my camera because I am here as a public communications specialist with the International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC).

I have come to Mosul to document what is happening, but what is happening soon overwhelms me.

@Cinnamon , that was some really great detective work on your part. Smart research!

Thanks, CM. I just wish everyone would stop meddling and stay HOME!  They're creating this refugee crisis. I thought the wars were horrid and they are... but they're moving complete armies around right under our noses with the excuse of more humanitarianism. Humanitarianism to save them in order to start it and then look at it. Just LOOK at it. omg.

I've never noticed those things, but you've certainly opened my eyes to them and a whole new area of research.

Wow, you're right. I googled all of the above in images and yes, It's as you say.

I never realized any of this because it seems they've intentionally detracted these stories.

Those images are horrible!

They are. Imagine what fun it is to try and retrieve the wounded and dead from that.

It's like a massive earthquake.

Imagine how long many were alive and never reached in time.

To die alone like that trapped is real bad!
