Iraqi Security Forces Find Terrorized Residents in Towns Recaptured from IS

Islamic State is losing ground in Iraq, but the group is putting up fierce resistance as Iraqi government troops and Kurdish peshmerga fighters approach Mosul. Terrorists are using various tactics to block the encroaching groups, including suicide bomber attacks, smoke screens, barricades, and human shields. Civilians fleeing the area and those the liberating troops find at home tell stories of terror experienced under Islamic State.
