Mosul residents try to flee combat zone

March 22, 2017, West Mosul, Northern Iraq. A young girl was brough in a local field clinic for a head injury. The Iraqi army is pushing deeper into the Western Mosul and its old town where hundreds of ISIS fighters are entrenched putting up a very stiff resistance to the advancing Iraqi soldiers. Casualties are heavy amongst the army, but also within the civilian population still trapped inside the fighting area. With the fall of Mosul planed for the spring the last ISIS large stronghold will be under Iraqi control for the first time since they lost the Northern city in 2014. (Jonathan Alpeyrie/SIPA)
