    Hospitals in northern Iraq are struggling to cope with the scale of the injuries in the battle to push ISIL out of Mosul.

    An increasing number of civilians are being caught in the crossfire as fighting intensifies in the west of the city.

    Many children have been left with life-changing injuries.
