magic hour at the mosque / by Maranie Staab

the sun sets on another day in mosul, as seen from inside a minaret. this particular mosque, located in west mosul, had been used a place of worship for daesh (and the minaret a snipers post) before being reclaimed by iraqi forces. it has since been refashioned into a tsp (trauma stabilization point), a place for wounded soldiers and civilians to receive care before being sent to mosul hospital.
