RAW: Drone footage reveals Mosul devastation

Drone footage from western Mosul’s hospital district shows the extent of destruction that the city suffered during the nine months it was under siege from ISIS.
Iraqi forces pushed militants out of the city after a grueling battle that ended in July. Thousands of civilians are believed to have been killed, and entire neighborhoods were turned into wastelands of rubble during the campaign.
At the height of its power in 2014, ISIS controlled as much as one third of the country, with its so-called caliphate stretching from eastern Aleppo province in Syria to the outskirts of Baghdad in Iraq.
