The cost of the war against ISIS can be seen across Iraq. The damage done to cities across the country has been is immense with neighborhoods, like the Old City in Mosul, reduced almost completely to rubble. Power plants, water wells, bridges, hospitals, and other infrastructure essential for society to function were damaged or completely destroyed. As Iraqis try rebuilding, they face the incredible obstacle of unexploded ordinance left behind by the battle. ISIS revolutionized improves explosive devices and turned areas under their control into assembly line bomb factories. They left countless boobytraps, land mines, and carbombs in their wake. The fight against them as well, scattered munitions like mortars, grenades, and bombs dropped by the US-led coalition. Men and women from Iraq and the international community are working to clear these explosives so Iraqi society can continue. Starting in 2017, I partnered with the United Nations Mine Action Service to document the demining efforts and the people helping to rebuild the country after ISIS.
