Christmas in ruins: Santas barely find kids to hand presents to in devastated Mosul (VIDEO)

Men dressed as Santa Claus walking through a ruined city may seem like a scene from a post-apocalyptic movie, but that’s how Christmas looks in Mosul, a former IS stronghold leveled to the ground in a US-backed liberation op.

Two Iraqis packed their bags with small but colorful gifts and took to Mosul’s Old City to bring some joy to the local children, who’ve seen so much suffering during the Islamic State (IS, formerly ISIS/ISIL) rule and the brutal anti-terrorist campaign in the city a year and a half ago.
