ISIS militants kill livestock, burn vehicles, houses in southwest of Kirkuk

A vehicle burned by ISIS militants in Dugishmani village in Taza Khurmatu sub-district, southwest of Kirkuk, August 30, 2021.

SULAIMANI (ESTA) — Islamic State (ISIS) militants attacked a village in southwest of Kirkuk on Tuesday, burning several vehicles and houses, according to Esta’s reporter. 

The reporter in Kirkuk said the militants attacked the village of Dugishmani in Taza Khurmatu sub-district, located in 26 kilometers of southwest of Kirkuk, at dawn on Tuesday.

The militants burned four vehicles, three tractors and a number of houses, the reporter added.

They also killed dozens of sheep and cows in the village, he continued.

The Islamic State remnants have increased attacks against civilians and Iraqi forces in the disputed territories, claimed by both Erbil and Baghdad.

On Sunday, the militants also attacked a military point in Hawija district, killing a federal policeman and destroyed four vehicles.

In 2017 Baghdad announced victory over the militant group, and attacks in Iraqi cities have since become much rarer, although troops continue to fight ISIS sleeper cells in mountainous and desert areas.

The militants still mount deadly operations, mostly at night and in remote areas.
