The moments of the fall of Mosul after the terrorist gangs took control of the city are still present in the conscience of Iraqis, as the day of June 10, 2014 still carries the remnants of pain and a wound that did not heal, as everyone remembers that brutal crime and setback Which will not be repeated in the presence of the sons of the homeland, who are close together, like the ash mountain, to confront everyone who begs himself to attack their land.
On that day, the malicious fantasies of those gangs were driven away, thinking that everything was over and that they had managed to undermine the land of civilizations and prophets, and that they were able to establish a state of illusion and myth, especially after that gang managed to enter a number of provinces and cities.
