Nineveh (IraqiNews) The security media cell announced on Thursday, seizing three car bombs in different areas of Nineveh, while pointed out that the car bombs were detonated on site.
In a press statement, the Cell reported that based on accurate intelligence information, joint forces from the 60th Brigade of the 20th Division and al-Hashd al-Ashaeri, managed to seize three booby-trapped vehicles, southwest of Lake Sinisla and southeast of Munayef Mount.
“It was treated and detonated without inflicting any losses,” the cell further added.
Violence in the country has surged further with the emergence of Islamic State extremist militants who proclaimed an “Islamic Caliphate” in Iraq and Syria in 2014.
Iraq declared the collapse of Islamic State’s territorial influence in November 2017 with the recapture of Rawa, a city on Anbar’s western borders with Syria, which was the group’s last bastion in Iraq.
