Two Iraqi farmers killed in bomb blast in Nineveh

Nineveh (IraqiNews.com) – Two Iraqi farmers were killed and three others wounded in a bomb explosion in Nineveh province, a security source said as the country still witnesses almost daily bomb attacks despite the defeat of Islamic State terrorists.

Speaking to Al-Ahd News, the source said that an explosive charge went off today afternoon at an agricultural land in Tal Afar district, west of Mosul, leaving two farmers dead and three others wounded.

“The bomb was placed by Islamic State militants during their capture of Mosul city,” added the source, who spoke on condition of anonymity.

Mass grave of Islamic State victims found in Iraq’s Mosul

Mosul (IraqiNews.com) — Iraqi security forces found on Tuesday a new mass grave of Islamic State victims in Mosul city, which once hosted the group’s self-proclaimed “caliphate”.

A security source told the National Iraqi News Agency (NINA) that a mass grave containing remains of 37 people was found in Ayn al-Tamr city in western Mosul.

“Most of the bodies are of Iraqi women, who were executed by the hardline Sunni group during its capture of Mosul,” the source said.

“The bodies were moved to the forensic medicine department in Mosul,” the source added.

As Iraqi troops recaptured areas held by Islamic State militants since 2014, they have regularly run into mass graves of civilians and security agents executed by the militants for fleeing the group’s havens or collaborating with security forces.
