Mis­deeds of IS

The Kurdish Globe - - NEWS BAR -

A source from the town of Tilkef in Nin­eveh Prov­ince told BasNews that an im­pro­vised ex­plo­sive de­vice (IED) was accidentally det­o­nated by IS in­sur­gents while they were prim­ing it, killing three.

Plant­ing IEDs is a rou­tine IS strat­egy, leav­ing the front­lines rid­dled with the de­vices as they retreat, thereby slow­ing the ad­vance of Kur­dish and Iraqi forces.

On the other hand, the ter­ror­ists have de­stroyed many ar­chae­o­log­i­cal and his­tor­i­cal sites in and around Mo­sul city, in­clud­ing cen­turies-old Chris­tian churches and the an­cient cities of Nim­rud and Ha­tra.
