For more than two months, Iraqi forces have fought to retake Mosul from Islamic State group militants. A quarter of the city has been recaptured but the jihadists are still resisting, while many civilians are caught in the crossfire. Although the foreign press has been largely banned from entering Mosul, our reporters managed to spend two days embedded with special forces.

The little boy at 16:24 breaks my heart, you can tell he's scared but he stands in between his family and the Iraqi soldiers, whom are there to protect them but just in case he holds his ground in front of his family. I'm glad the Iraqi soldier gave him a hug and a kiss on his forehead to reassure him that everything will be OK. Can you imagine the mental scars you would have being raised in the middle of a war torn country?

I am actually quite pleased with the Golden Special Forces of Iraq. Yah, they aren't American, Canadian, or other top tier Special Forces, but in the 3 years from destroyed to retrained and galvanized into fighting units, they have come a ways and are now doing pretty well. Not bad, not bad at all. They will only get better and destroy deash scum bags.
