Security forces repel IS attack north of Mosul, 10 militants killed
Iraqi security forces managed to kill 10 militants from the self-proclaimed Islamic State, after repulsing their attack using four car bombs on a residential neighborhood, north of Mosul, a source told Al Mada Press on Sunday.
The source said that troops of the army’s 16th brigade managed, today, to destroy four booby-trapped vehicles belonging to the Islamic State, while trying to approach the area of al-Hadba apartments, north of Mosul.
“Security forces were able also to kill ten fighters of the Islamic State group during the attack,” the source added on condition of anonymity.
Noteworthy, security forces liberated the majority of the eastern side of Mosul since the start of operation ‘We Are Coming, Nineveh’ in October 17, 2016.
