At Least 20 Suicide Bombers Blow Themselves Up in Mosul in Last 3 Days

MOSUL, Iraq – At least 20 suicide bombers, including women, from the Islamic State terror organization have detonated themselves in the last three days using explosives attached to their bodies in the old part of the Iraqi city of Mosul, the commander of the anti-terrorist forces said on Thursday.

Abdel Wahab al-Saadi told EFE that Iraqi troops managed to kill two other suicides bombers before they achieved their goal against Iraqi forces and families fleeing the old city of Mosul.

However, the commander did not provide information on whether such attacks caused any civilian and military casualties.

According to al-Saadi, in the last two days, his troops have killed at least 150 radicals in the historical area of the city where the last battle against the IS in this area is still going on.

Joint operations command spokesman Yehia Rasoul told EFE that they are fighting the last few meters of the battle to free the remaining areas under the control of the extremists, and noted that they are currently advancing in the al-Maidan neighborhood.

Iraqi forces are preparing to expel the remaining extremists in Mosul, three years after the IS occupied Iraq’s second largest city and made it their capital in this country.

The offensive on the old town of Mosul began on June 19, while government troops regained control of the other districts in the city in previous months.
