Local officials have repeatedly called on the government to liberate ISIS-held regions in Kirkuk province, but government forces are now focused on the six-month-old campaign to retake Mosul, ISIS's largest stronghold in Iraq. Judging from the bodies the Iraqis had recovered, it appeared that many had not bathed in weeks, according to the New York Times.
