Daesh kills 3 Iraq village chiefs in a week
have killed three village chiefs in less than a week in Iraq’s restive north, local officials said yesterday, as the targeting of state representatives escalates.
Iraq declared victory against Daesh last year, but small terrorist cells still wage attacks, especially in mountainous areas like Kirkuk.
There, Daesh has attacked state infrastructure and government officials, especially targeting local administrative heads known as “mukhtars.” The latest victim, on Friday night, was the mukhtar of Mahmudiya village. (AFP)
