Human rights organisations call for Iraqi government to protect innocent people and investigate civilian deaths
Mosuls civilians remain at grave risk and have endured a catastrophic ordeal, human rights organisations have said as they urge the Iraqi government to take steps to protect innocent people and investigate large-scale civilian deaths in the city.
The horrors that the people of Mosul have witnessed and the disregard for human life by all parties to this conflict must not go unpunished, said Lynn Maalouf, research director forAmnesty Internationalin the Middle East.
Entire families have been wiped out, many of whom are still buried under the rubble today. The people ofMosuldeserve to know, from their government, that there will be justice and reparation so that the harrowing impact of this operation is duly addressed.
