At least 200 ISIS terrorists move from Mosul to Diyala
Around 180 Islamic State (IS) militants have recently infiltrated Iraq’s Diyala province from Mosul, a source said.
“Information from security departments confirmed that 180 Islamic State members sneaked from Mosul into some regions in Diyala,” Awad Rubai’e, head of the security committee of Abu Sayda town, was quoted by Baghdad Today.
He said these sleeper cells would continue challenging the security in the province, and that they are responsible for frequent attacks.
In Diyala and many other areas of Iraq, security remains on decline as IS continues to conduct attacks. According to Iraqi News, two senior officers were killed on Wednesday in an armed attack in northeast of Baquba in Diyala. On Tuesday, an Iraqi soldier was killed, while four workers were wounded in two bomb blasts in Diyala.
