The Iraqi state in collaborating with the coalition forces led by the United States embarked in a military operation to recapture Iraq's second largest city, Mosul from the the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIL, also known as ISIS). The offensive objective was to liberate the city from the domain of the ISIS extremist militia. The fierce battles left extensive damage to the city's infrastructure and thousands of Iraqis were killed and injured across Nineveh region as well as caused more than 800,000 people to flee  their homes as a result of fighting.
