Omar Mohammed’s talk today for George Washington University’s Program on Extremism provided an intricately detailed account on the conditions in Mosul and the atrocities committed by ISIS. His harrowing accounts of these atrocities were contrasted by his discussions of the work currently being done to repair Mosul’s civil society and cultural heritage sites.
His stories reveal the extent of the damages inflicted by ISIS and how the people of Mosul are trying to rebuild. Not only was Mosul’s infrastructure devastated, but its people suffered greatly. Their heritage and culture were attacked by ISIS but now with the terrorist group gone, they are trying to overcome the damage both physically and mentally.
