ISIS Implants Bombs in Copies of Quran Near Mosul

ISIS terrorists have planted bombs in copies of the Quran before leaving them on the streets and in front of houses in Kan'ous, a village close to the Iraqi city of Mosul, the Iran Front Page has reported.

Resorting to guerilla deception is nothing new for ISIS, according to IFP, which has targeted Sunnis, Shias, Kurds, Christians, and many others. The village of Kan'ous has since been liberated by the Iraqi army, according to reports.

Earlier Monday, the US-led coalition against ISIS conducted five airstrikes to soften the terror group's forces near Mosul, according to an announcement from the Operation Inherent Resolve joint task force. The Mosul strikes reportedly eliminated seven mortar systems, four Daesh-held buildings, two vehicles, and a front-end loader while engaging four tactical units, according to the news release. The airstrikes also damaged 31 supply routes, Sputnik reported.
