Iraq – Visit to Qaraqosh by France’s consul-general in Erbil (November 13, 2016)


On November 13, the French consul-general in Erbil traveled to the town of Qaraqosh, freed by Iraqi and Peshmerga forces, where he was received by the Syriac Catholic Archbishop of Mosul and Qaraqosh.

The towns of Qaraqosh, Karemlash and Bartella, which he visited, were ravaged by fighting and by the atrocities committed by Daesh.

This visit reflects our country’s solidarity with the residents of those towns, who were forced to flee two years ago.
