image1392065295-21522-place01-0_s660x390Hospitals near Mosul reportedly are “overwhelmed” by growing numbers of children suffering gunshot wounds, burns and mutilations, as fighting intensifies between Iraqi forces and ISIS terrorists.

Doctors receiving critical cases at a hospital in the nearby city of Erbil told Save the Children that badly injured young children were arriving without their parents, who are not allowed to travel because of security restrictions.
Families fleeing the city are made to go through screening to assess whether they have any link to the Islamist group that has controlled the city for more than two years.
