Education under ISIS: Inside the ruins of Mosul University, now a training ground for jihadists

January 19, 2017 » Today News »

Mosul University was once one of the largest in the Middle East. Home to more than 30,000 students, as an institution it was larger than Kings or Edinburgh. That changed, in the summer of 2014 , when ISIS rampaged across northern Iraq.
Visiting two days after it was recaptured by Iraqi government forces last weekend, The Tab reports on what remains of the campus.

With Mosul’s conquest they also took back the university, the main campus of which, for the past two years, has served as something of a local headquarters for the jihadists.
