Battle Ready  

Iraqi coalition soldiers recently helped clear a town outside Mosul of Islamic State militants ahead of the battle to retake Iraq's "second city" from the jihadists, which is expected to drive hundreds of thousands civilians to camps for displaced people in northern Iraq. "We are expecting a huge number of refugees coming to our area in the coming months, as there is a lot of official talk about Mosul being liberated before the end of this year," the director of an indigenous ministry in northern Iraq said. Besides funds for food, clothing, blankets, tents and medicines for the next three months, the ministry needs help to purchase 30,000 New Testaments at $2 each, 10,000 children's Bibles at $5 each and 40,000 Bibles in Arabic and Kurdish. "Humanitarian aid will help us extend the hand of mercy to the people who need it with the message of healing and salvation for people with a lot of stories and tragedies that will result from this war," he said.
