Iraqi Federal Police said on Sunday they have seized 65 explosive devices belonging to the Islamic State (IS) in the disputed Kurdish province of Kirkuk.
The federal police said in an official statement that during separate anti-IS operations they have also seized a large amount of materials used by IS to develop bombs.
A specialized military engineering team destroyed the explosives, the statement said.
Iraq declared “full victory” over IS in December 2017. However, the group continues to carry out terrorist attacks around the country, mainly in the provinces of Nineveh, Salahaddin, Diyala, Kirkuk, and Anbar.
