In October 2016, allied forces joined with the Iraqi military to launch an offensive against ISIS forces in the Iraqi city of Mosul. After ISIS took control of the city in 2014 allied forces and the Iraqi military have launched three separate offensives aimed at recapturing the city. The first two offensives, the Anbar Campaign and the Mosul offensive were unsuccessful in their attempts to purge ISIS forces from the city. The current offensive, the Battle of Mosul, was launched in October 2016 and has continued into the spring of 2017. In March 2017 a US coalition airstrike killed 200 innocent civilians in the city. Humanitarian organizations in Mosul estimate that at least 600,000 civilians are trapped in the city. Opponents of the offensive argue that in order to prevent the deaths of more innocent civilians allied and Iraqi forces should abandon the campaign. Proponents argue that letting ISIS control a major Iraqi city will bring instability to the Middle East and allied forces must use defeat ISIS at all costs. See recent Mosul news
