At least three civilians were killed on Tuesday in an ISIS army attack at west Mosul, an informed source told The Baghdad Post.

On the other hand, security forces at Salahuddin Governorate announced the arrest of an ISIS terrorist and a number of heavy and light weapons during an inspection operation north of Tikrit.

The United Nations released a report this week detailing the "staggering civilian death toll in Iraq" over the past two years. It found that nearly 19,000 Iraqi civilians have been killed since the ISIS insurgency flared at the beginning of 2014, while some 3.2 million Iraqis have been displaced, The Washington Post reported.

The report estimated that some 3,500 Iraqis continue to be held captive as jihadists’ “slaves,” including many women and girls from the persecuted Yazidi sect who have been abducted and forced into sexual slavery.
