Tal Afar (IraqiNews.com) A huge Islamic State’s weapon stash in Tal Afar town, west of Mosul, has been burnt, a security source from Nineveh province was quoted saying.

“Unknown persons infiltrated into the biggest store of weapons of IS in Tal Afar, killed the guards and set the store on fire,” the source told AlSumaria News on Sunday.

“This caused a huge blast, which completely burnt the store,” the source, who preferred anonymity, added.

The group, according to the source, has been on high alert, setting up checkpoints and inspecting houses in search for the perpetrators.

On Friday, the group reportedly imposed curfew for unknown reasons and deploying its armed detachments in the town.

The international coalition, led by the U.S. launch air raids in and around the town in order to facilitate the battle for Iraqi troops, which announced earlier this week concluding arrangements ahead of the invasion.

The Iraqi army’s ninth armored division reportedly reached last week to the boundaries of the town. An army official was previously quoted as saying that an army division was ordered to leave Mosul toward Tal Afar within preparations to retake the town, which has been set as the next target of operations after victory was declared in Mosul on July 10.
