Mosul (IraqiNews.com) A Counter-Terrorism officer revealed, on Sunday, that security forces stormed a building that was used by suicide bombers belonging to the Islamic State as a stronghold, west of Mosul.

Colonel Hashim Fadel said in a press statement that forces from the elite Counter-Terrorism Service stormed a building that was used by dozens of the Islamic State’s suicide bombers as a stronghold in Souq al-Maash, west of Mosul.

The confrontations so far resulted in the killing of more than 30 suicide bombers belonging to the Islamic State, Fadel added.
