Academics in Mosul are attempting to revive the city’s barren libraries in order to revive the city’s cultural heritage. For centuries, Mosul was known for its artists, writers, and libraries brimming with books in multiple languages, before jihadists destroyed everything.
Despite its liberation over a year ago, the destruction wrought by ISIS militants on the city of Mosul continues to plague it today. The citizens of Mosul ask the Iraqi Government to restore some of the areas so displaced people can return to their homes.
The city of Mosul, which was the capital of the Islamic State in Iraq until less than a year ago, is planning to rebuild the historic al-Nouri Mosque and its hunchback minaret with financial support from the UAE and under UNESCO supervision.
The battle for Mosul that brought in the Iraqi forces to liberate the city from ISIS in 2017 resulted in the destruction of much of Mosul. The cost of rebuilding the city requires tens of billions of dollars
After being liberated from ISIS last year, Mosul is still facing many issues including the lack of reconstruction and return of public services. With the elections coming soon, citizens of Mosul express their issues to the candidates.
