Iraqi Security Forces Foil Six ISIL Suicide Bombers’ Attacks in Eastern Mosul

Iraqi Armed Forces have thwarted six ISIL suicide attacks in eastern Mosul on Saturday.

The Iraqi Armed Forces since Saturday morning have repelled six suicide attacks of the Daesh terrorist group trying to recapture a district in eastern Mosul, a source in the local law enforcement told Sputnik.

"Daesh [the Arabic acronym for IS/ISIL/ISIS] carried out six suicide attacks this morning, all of them were countered by the armed forces. The militants were trying to regain control over the Zahra district," the source said.

The district was liberated on Thursday, joining a few other Mosul quarters freed by the Iraqi forces, whose offensive on the city began on October 17.

Daesh terrorist group, which has been in control of Mosul since 2014, is outlawed in many countries including the United States and Russia.
