Students have returned to schools as they have resumed their activities since ISIS were expelled from the eastern sections of Mosul.
Iraq’s Education Ministry announced that around 70 schools have resumed operations in Iraq’s second largest city.
Schools ceased operations in Mosul besides a handful that had to follow their strict curriculum.
Schools that stopped teaching were turned into prisons, storage centers and training bases for the terrorist group. Some families had also voluntarily not sent their children to the ISIS-run schools to avoid being indoctrinated with the radical Wahhabi interpretation of Islam, the same branch of the faith practiced in Saudi Arabia.
