Baghdadi death: scars of war linger in Mosul | AFP

Five years after he made their hometown infamous as the heart of his “caliphate,” residents of Iraq’s Mosul said Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi’s death should be marked only one way – with “a huge party.” In July 2014, Baghdadi climbed a set of stairs at the Al-Nuri Mosque in the northern Iraqi city and declared himself “caliph” over millions of people in Iraq and Syria. Still now, Mosul bears the scars of a conflict that killed thousands, displaced millions and left cities across both countries in ruins — including Mosul.

ISIS destroyed Mosul’s Grand al-Nuri mosque and its iconic leaning minaret known as al-Hadba Wednesday night, Iraq’s Ministry of Defense said. The mosque, which is also known as Mosul’s Great Mosque, is where ISIS leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi declared an ‘Islamic caliphate’ in 2014, shortly after Mosul was overrun by militants. The minaret, which leaned like Italy’s Tower of Pisa, had stood for more than 840 years.

The Islamic State (Full Length)

WATCH NOW: Embedded with Al-Qaeda in Syria – http://bit.ly/2ynOxnn

The Islamic State, a hardline Sunni jihadist group that formerly had ties to al Qaeda, has conquered large swathes of Iraq and Syria. Previously known as the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS), the group has announced its intention to reestablish the caliphate and has declared its leader, the shadowy Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, as the caliph.

The lightning advances the Islamic State made across Syria and Iraq in June shocked the world. But it’s not just the group’s military victories that have garnered attention — it’s also the pace with which its members have begun to carve out a viable state.

Flush with cash and US weapons seized during its advances in Iraq, the Islamic State’s expansion shows no sign of slowing down. In the first week of August alone, Islamic State fighters have taken over new areas in northern Iraq, encroaching on Kurdish territory and sending Christians and other minorities fleeing as reports of massacres emerged.

VICE News reporter Medyan Dairieh spent three weeks embedded with the Islamic State, gaining unprecedented access to the group in Iraq and Syria as the first and only journalist to document its inner workings.
