Frontline photographer Osie Greenway has been documenting clashes related to the Syrian Civil and the refugee crisis since 2012.
He arrived in northern Iraq in 2014 just as ISIS were storming military bases and captured the city of Mosul from the Iraqi army.
Osie is now deep in Iraq covering the offensive to liberate the entirety of Mosul - Iraqi prime minister Haider al-Abadi announced the liberation of East Mosul on January 24.
The photos, taken in January 2017, expose the harsh conditions awaiting the newly liberated citizens of Mosul as they line up to receive medicine and food from the Iraqi army and face the prospect of rebuilding the remains of the city.
Portraits expose the remains of bombed out buildings in Mosul’s business district, which took heavy shelling during fighting between Iraqi security forces and ISIS militants, and the bodies of ISIS fighters left to rot in the open air.
One image captures the charred remains of a teenage ISIS fighter killed during an airstrike, while another shows Iraqi youths celebrating a wedding as they drive past the remains of an alleged ISIS militant killed during clashes between Iraqi soldiers and ISIS.
ISIS propaganda has a heavy presence throughout the city and murals profess, “We will fight all of the West” and, “We are fighting in Iraq though we are keeping our eyes on Palestine” to passersby.
While the fighting rages on in Western Mosul, citizens of Eastern Mosul are dusting themselves off and beginning the long road to recovery as the war that has torn apart families and destroyed countless buildings carries on around them.
