ISIS bomb attack wounds four firefighters in Eastern Mosul
At least four firefighters were injured on Thursday in a bomb explosion while attempting to extinguish a blaze engulfing a number of farms in the town of Bashik, eastern Mosul province, a local source said.
Talking to BasNews, the source pointed out that a fire was set to several agricultural fields in Bashik, and that the firefighter crews reached the area to bring the fire under control, but that a bomb exploded and targeted a fire engine.
He further noted that the explosive had most probably been planted by the Islamic State (IS) jihadists.
A great number of farms, the majority of which are owned by the Kurdish residents, have been set on fire by unknown men in the disputed areas in the past three to four weeks.
