Iraqi Official Shrugs Off Abuse Claims Against Islamic State in Mosul: ‘This Is War’

UNITED NATIONS – A top Iraqi United Nations official responded boisterously Friday to allegations of human rights abuses by Iraqi forces against Islamic State fighters in Mosul, telling reporters: “This is war.”

Mohammed Marzooq, the Iraqi Charge d’affaires for Iraq’s Mission to the U.N., briefed reporters about the routing of ISIS from Mosul. Iraqi Prime Minister Haider al-Abadi arrived in Mosul this week and praised Iraqi troops for freeing the key northern city from the international terrorist organization.
