Bismillah ir-Rahman ir-Rahim


يَا أَيُّهَا الَّذِينَ آمَنُوا إِن جَاءَكُمْ فَاسِقٌ بِنَبَإٍ فَتَبَيَّنُوا أَن تُصِيبُوا قَوْمًا بِجَهَالَةٍ فَتُصْبِحُوا عَلَىٰ مَا فَعَلْتُمْ نَادِمِينَ
"Ya ayyuha allatheena amanoo in jaakum fasiqun binaba-in fatabayyanoo an tuseeboo qawman bijahalatin fatusbihoo AAala ma faAAaltum nadimeena"
"O you who believe! If comes to you a wicked person with information, investigate, lest you harm a people in ignorance, then you become, over what you have done, regretful."

According to pro-Russian propagandists, conditions have deteriorated sharply in #Mosul, "#Iraq".

"#ISIS" takes food without paying and confiscated much of stocks under the pretence of supporting the Islamic State militiamen.

Everything is expensive and the stores are half-empty.

The markets were crowded a year ago, but not for the last ten months because so many people have fled.

There has been no mains electricity for seven months and everybody depends on private generators which run on locally refined fuel. This is available everywhere, but is expensive and of such poor quality that it works only for generators and not for cars or scooters – and the generators often break down.

There is a shortage of drinking water.

There is no mobile phone network and no internet is available.

There are signs of growing criminality and corruption.

Though this may mainly be evidence that "ISIS" is in desperate need of money.

We fact-checked, now judge for yourself. ..

When recent pictures speak a thousand words.

In case you forgot, we live in an instant flow of information era. We live in the digital age.
