Daesh attack kills 2 women in northern Iraq
Despite 2017 defeat, group's ‘sleeping cells’ still carry out sporadic attacks in northern, western parts of Iraq

BAGHDAD (AA) - At least two women were killed in an attack carried out by Daesh terrorist group in northern Iraq’s Nineveh province on Thursday.

Col. Ahmad al-Jubouri of the Iraqi army told Anadolu Agency that "elements belonging to Daesh attacked the [Nineveh's] village of al-Khazrajiya at dawn on Thursday."

"Two women were killed and several civilians were injured, including a number of children and a tribal elder," the source added.

In mid-2014, the Daesh terrorist group overran roughly one-third of Iraq, including the northern city of Mosul.

By late 2017, the Iraqi army, with the help of a U.S.-led military coalition, had managed to recover almost all lost territory from the notorious terror group.

Although officials in Baghdad say Daesh’s presence in Iraq has been all but eradicated, the group's "sleeping cells" continue to carry out sporadic attacks, especially in northern and western parts of the country.
