    After years of living under the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIL, known as ISIS) group, children in the Iraqi city of Mosul are returning back to school.

    They live in the eastern party of the city where the armed group has already been pushed out.

    But the battle against ISIL in western Mosul continues.
