Angelina Jolie called the devastation of Mosul the worst she’d ever seen in her time as a UNHCR special envoy, during a visit to the Iraqi city on June 16.
The UNHCR said that the trip marked Jolie’s 61st mission and her fifth visit to Iraq with the agency.
Jolie described the people of Mosul as having “very little support – next to nothing.”
She continued: "They are rebuilding themselves with their bare hand … yet they are so happy because the last Eid they were under occupation and suffering and this Eid they have nothing, but they are free.”
