Efforts are underway in the northern Iraqi city of Mosul to rebuild churches and mosques destroyed by the self-proclaimed Islamic State (IS; formerly ISIS/ISIL) during its occupation of the city. Footage shot on Thursday shows some of the destroyed buildings, as well as the ongoing reconstruction work.

According to local reports, up to 15 of Mosul's many churches and monasteries were destroyed by IS, who controlled the city for two years from June 2014 until Iraqi government forces recaptured it in July 2017.

However, Christian places of worship were not the only ones targeted, IS also destroyed the famous Great Mosque of al-Nuri, from which leader of IS Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi had proclaimed the organisation a caliphate, as well as several other ancient mosques throughout the city.
