Civilians flee Old Mosul for safety, ISIS suicide bomber targets them
Many civilians from the Mosul's old quarter in the western part of the city fled for their lives and arrived at the industrial zone on June 23, 2017.
As they marched to safety, an ISIS suicide bomber blew himself up among them killing and wounding many.
Old Mosul has witnessed some of the heaviest fighting between Iraqi troops and ISIS militants since an operation to free the city was launched in October 2016.
