Another reminder of that was received this week, from Iraqi forces fighting to retake Mosul from Islamic State terrorists.
Iraqi forces, who continue their advance in western Mosul, said that they had found a mass grave containing the remains of about 500 people at Badoush prison on Saturday (11 March). Since beginning the campaign in October, Iraq forces, teamed with USA -led coalition support, have recaptured eastern Mosul, along with around 30 percent of the west from outnumbered militants who are fiercely defending their last stronghold in Iraq.
"Our forces have seized control of 65 percent of western Mosul", he told Anadolu Agency.
He said Iraqi forces controlled Souk al-Arbaa and al-Remah Square in Bab al-Toub, located around 300 meters from the Old Bridge, one of five bridges that connected west Mosul to its east.
"The enemy has lost its fighting power and its resolve has weakened".
"We are waiting for forensic teams and human rights officials to begin unearthing the grave to uncover the whole story", Mr Nouri said on Sunday.

Now, Iraqi forces have regrouped and ISIS has been beaten back. The US should expect to remain involved in Iraq to ensure that anti-ISIS gains stick and that conditions that allowed insurgent groups to emerge in 2013 are resolved.
