(IraqiNews.com) Kirkuk – The leader in al-Hashed al-Shaabi forces, Jabbar Maamouri, announced on Thursday, that a woman killed an ISIS militant who tried to kidnap her daughter near Hawija, southwest of Kirkuk.
Mamouri said in a press statement, “A woman from a village near Hawija attacked an ISIS militant, who was trying to kidnap her 9-year-old daughter,” adding that, “She stabbed the militant in chest several times with a knife.”
“The woman fled with her children before the arrival of a force belonging to ISIS, which burned her house and carried out a search operation,” Mamouri explained. “Anger spreads among the people of Hawija, due to ISIS horrendous crimes against the families,” Mamouri added.
