HARBIN Wholesale Carolina Hurricanes Jersey , July 13 (Xinhua) -- A group of 54 Japanese citizens, all now orphans, on Monday paid a visit to the graves of their adoptive Chinese parents in Fangzheng county in northeast China's Heilongjiang Province.

From 1931, the Japanese government offered incentives to its people to migrate to China's northeastern provinces, which were then illegally occupied for another decade.

Abandoned by their birth parents during the hasty retreat at the end of World War II in 1945, the orphans, now over 70 years old Wholesale Chicago Blackhawks Jersey , were taken in and raised by the very Chinese residents of those northeastern provinces who spent so many years suffering at the hands of the waifs' parents.

As WWII and the War of the Chinese People's Resistance Against Japanese Aggression was coming to end, more than 4,000 children were simply abandoned by their fleeing parents. Most of them relocated to Japan after China and Japan normalized relations in 1972.

For those "orphans", Japan is the motherland, but China is the hometown, said Ikeda Sumie, director general of a Tokyo support group for those Japanese returned from China.

"All the adoptive parents were the same as my own. They are not buried here Wholesale Colorado Avalanche Jersey , but visiting these graves is a way paying tribute to my own saviors," said Ikeda Sumie.

Nakamura Keiko, 73, knelt on the grave of her parents and wept.

"Mom and dad adopted me when I was three. They never had a child of their own and raised me as their daughter. They brought me up and sent me to school. I thank them and all Chinese for giving me a life," she said.

The delegation arrived in China only a few weeks before the 70th anniversary of the end of the wars.

Maita Akemi recalled days when his adoptive parents saved all their food and necessities for him in times of difficulty.

"My mother died in her 50s and never had time to enjoy her life," Maita Akemi said.

"As survivors and witnesses of history, we have an obligation to tell the young people of today's Japan about that period of their history Wholesale Columbus Blue Jackets Jersey , to let them understand the pain of war. Let us never allow such tragedy be repeated."

The cemetery is located in Fangzheng County near Harbin, capital city of Heilongjiang.

CAIROMOSUL, July 9 (Xinhua) -- Iraqi Prime Minister Haider al-Abadi on Sunday arrived in Mosul and congratulated the Iraqi army on the victory against Islamic State (IS) in the nine-month battles to liberate Mosul.

Here is the timeline of the major events in the battle to recapture Mosul from IS since October, 2016.

The major offensive to recapture Mosul, the capital of Nineveh Province and second largest city in Iraq, from the IS started on Oct. 17, 2016 Wholesale Dallas Stars Jersey , as announced by Iraqi Prime Minister Haider al-Abadi, commander-in-chief of the Iraqi forces.

"Today I declare the launch of the operation of liberating Nineveh province. The time of victory has come, and the moment of the great victory is approaching," Abadi said in his brief address aired on Al Iraqiya.

On Oct. 31, Iraqi security forces entered Gogjali district, marking the first time it had reached the edge of Mosul after two weeks of the massive offensive to dislodge IS militants from their last major stronghold in Iraq.

On Nov. 1, Iraqi security forces seized Gogjali district and took control of the state television building Wholesale Detroit Red Wings Jersey , the first important building it captured in the IS-held city.

On Nov. 5, the Iraqi army and federal police entered Hammam al-Alil, capturing the last and largest town south of Mosul, as battles against IS militants in the eastern part of the city continued.

On Nov. 16, Iraqi paramilitary units, known as Hashd Shaabi, announced the liberation of strategic Tal Afar air base west of Mosul Wholesale Edmonton Oilers Jersey , saying the recapture of the air base would cut off the supply routes between Mosul and the IS-held town of Tal Afar.

On Nov. 23, Iraqi security forces completely encircled Mosul, cutting off the IS supply routes from the west side of the city and preventing IS militants from escaping outside Mosul.

In December, the advances on Mosul were slowed amid grueling fighting inside Mosul with IS militants, who used civilians as human shields and resorted to suicide bombings, in addition to mortar and sniper attacks.

On Dec. 29, Iraq security forces launched the second phase of the major offensive to free IS-held Mosul Wholesale Florida Panthers Jersey , especially the eastern part of the city.

On Jan. 6, 2017, Iraqi government forces freed al-Mazari neighborhood and the residential compound of Hadbaa neighborhood in northern Mosul, marking the first significant progress in the renewed push.

On Jan. 13, Iraqi government forces seized back the complex of Mosul University Wholesale Los Angeles Kings Jersey , including its technical institute and dormitories, allowing students to return for education at the one of the largest educational and research centers in the Middle East.

On Jan. 24, Iraqi Prime Minister Haider al-Abadi declared full liberation of the eastern part of Mosul after more than 100 days of fighting against IS militants.

On Feb. 19, Iraqi security forces announced the commencement of a new push to drive IS militants out of the western part of Mosul, or the right bank of Tigris.

On Feb. 23, Iraqi security forces retook control of Mosul International Airport after four hours of heavy clashes with IS militants.

On Feb. 26, Iraqi forces seized back al-Mamoun neighborhood Wholesale Montreal Canadiens Jersey , the first neighborhood completely freed from IS militants since the battle to liberate western Mosul began.
