Babies starve as Mosul war grinds on

A nurse touches the hand of Nawras Raed, a six-month-old Iraqi girl, at a hospital run by Medecins Sans Frontieres in Qayyara, Iraq April 6, 2017. The babies cry with hunger but are so severely malnourished that doctors treating them at a hospital in Iraq would make their condition worse if they fed them enough to stop the pangs.

Many of the starving infants are from Mosul, where war between Islamic State militants and Iraqi forces is taking a heavy toll on several hundred thousand civilians trapped inside the city.

Dua Nawaf, 8, whose family was killed in an airstrike in Mosul, is carried by her aunt. The girl suffered burns to the head and hands in an airstrike by the U.S.-led coalition that killed more than 100 people in the Mosul Jadida district last month, including both her parents. "The family told me this morning that she (Dua) had some problems, especially in the night, so we are organizing a mental health (assessment) for her," pediatrician Rosanna Meneghetti said, reaching into her pocket for a balloon, which she inflated and gave to the girl. Only the faintest hint of a smile appeared on Dua's face.

Iraqi girl Nawras Raed, six months old, lies in a hospital run by Medecins Sans Frontieres in Qayyara. Residents who have managed to escape say there is almost nothing to eat but flour mixed with water and boiled wheat grain. What little food remains is too expensive for most residents to afford, or kept for Islamic State members and their supporters.

Ayham Ahmed, 5, who was wounded with his family in an explosion in Mosul, plays with his sister. On average, more than half the patients seen in the emergency room of the MSF hospital are under the age of 15, partly because there is a shortage of pediatricians in the area, so many children are referred there. The pediatric ward is so full there are two patients to each bed, and most of the women's wing is taken up by children recovering from war injuries such as broken limbs, burns and shrapnel.

Iraqi children lie in a hospital run by Medecins Sans Frontieres in Qayyara. Part of the problem, Legall said, is a lack of tradition of breast-feeding among Iraqi mothers, who usually raise their babies on formula milk, which is now almost impossible to come by in Mosul. Even if they want to breastfeed, many mothers find it difficult due to the physical and emotional strain of living in a warzone: "The mother is very stressed and can't find much food herself so cannot produce so much milk," Meneghetti said.
