Iraqi town devastated after battles with ISIL

Army forced ISIL out of Tuz Kharmato in September, but residents returning to assess damage have been left in despair.

    The Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant took over the Iraqi town of Tuz Kharmato in Salahudeen province in June, causing thousands of people to seek refuge elsewhere.

    The Iraqi army recaptured the town in September, but the continuous shelling and battles for the town have caused devastation.
