Before the Islamic State group took over the town of Hamam Alil in 2014, people from all over Iraq visited the historic spa south of Mosul. Now that the town has been liberated, the customers have returned.
In between fighting against the Islamic State group, Iraqi soldiers visit Hamal Alil sulphur spa for relaxation. Customers get scrubs, massages and cover themselves with mud after bathing.
