Salahuddin (IraqiNews.com) Four civilians were killed and nine others were wounded in a bomb blast, targeting families fleeing IS-held areas, north of the province, a source told Alsumaria News on Saturday.

The source said, “Today, a bomb exploded, targeting families fleeing from the Islamic State-held areas in Hawija in Hamrin Mountains, north of Salahuddin.”

“The blast killed four civilians and wounded nine others, including women and children,” the source added on condition of anonymity.

It is worth mentioning that the Islamic State group is still controlling Hawija District and several areas south of Kirkuk, which consider the group’s strongholds in the areas and bases to attack Salahuddin Province.
