Police defused 260 IEDs in Sinjar: Interior Ministry

Iraq's Ministry of Interior announced on Saturday that Sinjar Police Directorate succeeded to defuse 260 improvised explosive devices (IED) that belong to ISIS terrorist group.

The ministry added that the police also defused two explosive belts, as well as seizing three rockets that were planted by ISIS terrorists in Tilkessab village.

It pointed out that the explosives were defused in Mosul city.        

Although Prime Minister Haider al-Abadi announced full liberation of Iraqi lands and the end of war against ISIS in December 2017, Iraqi cities are witnessing acts of violence as terrorist group's sleeper cells continue to launch attacks targeting civilians and security forces.
