Watch: Startling Drone Footage Shows What Mosul Looks Like After 8 Months Of Fighting

by | Jul 3, 2017 | Headline News | 60 comments


Despite being outnumbered 15-1, ISIS forces swiftly captured the Iraqi city of Mosul in 2014, before declaring their monstrous caliphate. It was the victory that put them on the map, and it left hundreds of thousands of refugees in its wake. But three years later, Iraqi forces have nearly finished retaking the city, and are in the process of mopping up the few remaining ISIS fighters who are clinging to several acres of territory along the Tigris river. It’s taken 8 months of near constant fighting, but the city of Mosul, which was once the largest city ruled by ISIS, has nearly fallen.

So what does a city look like after being fought over for nearly a year? Recently released drone footage has revealed the extent of the damage, most notably the destruction of the Grand Al-Nuri Mosque, which used to look like this:


But now looks like this after ISIS detonated the building just before it could be captured by Iraqi forces:

As you can see however, the rest of the city looks pretty bleak as well. That’s because the population has declined from roughly 1,800,000 people to 664,000 people over the past three years.

Take note. This is what a city really looks like when the SHTF.

      Check out David Eubanks. Perhaps you could interview him and write an article. He was the one who braved sniper fire and saved a little girl hiding under her dead mother for 2 days in the hot sun in Mosul. I submitted the interviews on Fox last week. He is currently visiting friends and family here in the States.

        Lets get the facts strait. There was no ISIS until the US and CIA invented ISIS, they Armed them with the abandoned US Equipment, trucks, Humvees, arms and ammo, when the US military left Iraq and it all there for the taking. It was all planned by Hillary Clinton, Obama and the Seedy underpinnings of NeoCons and Western Alliances with the other Terrorist nations of Saudi and Israaaehell.

        This was the Plot for this ISIS group to use the abandoned US Arms to then go invade Syria to destroy that country, which that scam fell apart pretty quick in failure and is crumbling. So this Fake Proxy war claiming they are fighting ISIS is a Hoax, is just more chaos and displacement of million of innocent people fleeing for their lives. The US just loves dropping drone bombs, esp on children as young as 1 yrs old. So yeah for many Iraqi is hell on earth/ SHTF thanks to the USA Government. They bombed this city after they gave the heads up to ISIS that this city was going to be bombed, and most of ISIS left before the bombing. Its all a Fraud.

          The goal is to destroy any government that doesn’t conform to the globalists NWO. Chaos is the ally of TPTB. Fragmented governments don’t exert their independent will; the then can’t stop natural gas lines (Syria) or dare accept anything other than the US dollar for their oil (Iraq & Libya).

          What is sad is that kids believe and join the military that are either too poor to have any other opportunity or were raised in believing coming from homes with a military tradition. They’re fighting for Wall Street as USMC Major General two time recipient Smedley Butler stated in his book, “War Is A Racket”.

          “I served in all commissioned ranks from a second Lieutenant to a Major General. And during that time, I spent most of my time being a high-class muscle man for Big Business, for Wall Street, and for the bankers. In short, I was a racketeer for capitalism.”

            On the other side, Arab kids believe in the propaganda of ISIS, and join the terror groups just as USA kids join the military. Poverty can make a kid become soldier or mercenary or terrorist.

        We all know CNN is Fake News, but this story just broke. CNN claims they have 36 million Twitter followers. Even that news is Fake.

        When their so called Twitter followers were surveyed 48% of their followers were fake twitter accounts. So their real following is only like 17 Million.

      Destruction. Keep in mind too that the houses you see in the footage are cement block masonry and brick built.

      Now compare the same SHTF here for 8 months.
      You can never have enough preps, lead and sand bags. Because once your brotherly drone is activated over you, what do you think would happen?

      Take a few minutes while enjoying your 4th of July holiday and silently thank these patriots.
      It’s not much to ask for the price they paid.
      Remember: freedom is never free!

      Interesting article about those who signed the Declaration of Independence.
      They Signed For Us “At the end of this column, you’ll find a link that will take you to a free copy of the book, “They Signed for Us.”

      You may read it online or download it and print your own copy. The file also includes a list of all of the signers and the states they represented, plus the complete text of the Declaration of Independence.”

        What patriots? No one asked the ZOG butchers to invade Iraq or any other country for that matter.

        They’re the ones who bought the gold and silver for prepping.

        Once the war is over, opportunity! They can buy up all the real estate, start the job of rebuilding, giving all the jobs to their family and friends and then end up ruling over the land.

        History is full of that sort of stuff.

    17. Frank Thoughts

      Looks beautiful! All Muslim cities should look like that.

      On a serious note, it is now time to flatten it, reduce it in size and hand it over to Israeli construction companies to build a new city minus the Muslims. The much smaller city will maybe house 100,000 people most of whom will work in the oil and gas industry. Fill it up with South Asian workers.

        A world without a single Gew would be paradise on earth. They need to be eliminated 100% exterminated. America lost WW2. We got the Gew. I’d rather be speaking German. Look at America now, it looks like Mosel. Thank the Gew and the Fed and the Commie Socialist polluted Government, Hollywood propaganda, California, Detroit, welfare EBT, Great Society, War on Poverty is a commie sham, Shitcago. All commie socialist areas. Naacp, Black lives matter. Its all about Nation Destroying. Gews been destroying America for 100 years. We have a Cancer. America looks like Mosel.

      What is left?

    19. NorseMan

      A couple differences if (when?) it comes to Amerika. A lot of brick and concrete buildings in the video – those often take government issued ordinance to take down. In America they will likely stay standing (unless there is enough of a government left – with a military). In Amerika there would be more fires and burned out cars and buildings.

      Just an example of the relative ineffectiveness of explosives and bullets compared to Napalm.

      Napalm on the same scale would have done much more and been cheaper as well, I love Napalm.

      The Iraqis will blame the US for this.

      A lot of Kurds and Iraqis died to win back that bombed out and shot up piece of real estate. It cost ISIS very little to get it in the first place.

      There’s Russian drone footage and other drone footage all over Syria. Search Damascus ceases to be a city. Not only is it Biblical, but it is now physical as well. There is proof it is happening right before our eyes!

    27. JCLincoln

      Credit goes to George Soros for funding promulgating a refugee crisis, the Pentagon for its provision of artillery and training of terrorist groups like ISIS, Free Syrian (terrorist army), targeting assistance to other countries (Israel and Turkey).
      We just couldn’t have done it without you.

      Oh, and to Hillary Clinton for her making available poison gas back in 2013 and 2016. Thank you, Hillary. Stevens and Qaddafi thank you postmortem.
