Civilians fleeing the fighting in Mosul

This can be the final battle to retake the city of Mosul to the self-proclaimed Islamic State. Iraqi military, tribal Sunni Kurdish peshmergas fighters and International Alliance planes participating in this offensive to try to free the terrorists ' bastion in northern Iraq that fell into the hands of Daesh in June 2014.

Makhmur, located about 70 km southeast of Mosul, is one of the towns that was taken over by ISIL. Now serves as a shelter for thousands of families who fled the big city to escape the yoke of the terrorists, at a time when the Daesh is being pursued on two fronts. A former sports complex serves as temporary shelter and space is reduced to accommodate so many people.

"The Daesh uses brutal repressive methods. They made us wear beards, were forbidden to smoke and we had to wear long clothes, as they. Imposed-in an extreme lifestyle and practiced racial discrimination. Are a bunch of unspeakable terrorist "â€" explains a man.

The self-proclaimed Islamic State intrusion in the lives of communities is extreme and not at the modesty of the home people feel safe. Oppression is permanent, as it describes a woman:

"We spent most of our time at home. We were afraid to talk. They controlled everything in our lives. Forced women to cover their faces and men had to wear long clothes, as they, and beard. And if we had a problem at home, a family problem, they had the final word. "
