Fresh images from Iraq show the innocence of youth. Images show dirty children playing in the streets as black smoke from burning oil wells rises into the sky. Women and children are seen congregated near Al-Qayyarah, which was liberated this week by Iraqi government forces, as thick, acrid smoke fills the horizon. Some of the children can be seen celebrating after forces freed their village from the control of ISIS.
