Iraqi Army Christian TownDownload
Licensed to London News Pictures. 23/10/2016. An Iraqi soldier belonging to the Counter-Terrorism group, dons his bullet proof vest as he and colleagues prepare for a trip into the nearby town of Bartella.
Bartella, a mainly Christian town with a population of around 30,000 people before being taken by the Islamic State in August 2014, was captured two days ago by the Iraqi Army's Counter Terrorism force as part of the ongoing offensive to retake Mosul. Although ISIS militants were pushed back a large amount of improvised explosive devices are still being found in the town's buildings. Photo credit: Matt Cetti-Roberts/LNP
