The streets of Eastern Mosul are once again bustling with life and noise.
Once under Daesh control, residents of Iraq's second city were banned from practicing normal activities.

But since the militants were driven out, night hours have gotten longer in the eastern part of the city and people can now go out, dine, and shop freely.
