MOSUL – Battle to free Iraq’s second largest city from Daesh is into it’s second week. Russia’s Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov said Western outrage over Aleppo was hypocrisy given that Moscow and it’s allies had asked civilians to leave the areas held by rebels in the same way the US LED coalition had of Mosul, where 1.5 million people are trapped in the fighting. Russia is backing the regime of President Bashar Al Assad in a war against the ‘Free Syrian Army’.
