Nineveh (IraqiNews.com) A local source in Nineveh Province revealed that the Islamic State group imposed a curfew in the majority of Tal Afar, and started to arrest its local leaders in the district, Alsumaria News reported on Wednesday.

The source said, “The Islamic State group imposed a curfew in the majority of areas in Tal Afar, west of Mosul, amid intense spread of its armed detachments in main streets.”

“The Islamic State also started to arrest its local leaders, after the failure of last Saturday’s attack on al-Hashd al-Shaabi and losing dozens of leaders and members,” the source added on condition of anonymity.

Earlier this week, al-Hashd al-Shaabi forces foiled a massive attack launched by the Islamic State on their headquarters in Tal Afar, west of Nineveh Province.
