At least nine security officials were killed and three others injured Saturday in Daesh bomb attacks in west of Mosul, police said, APA reports citing  Anadolu Agency.

 

Iraqi security official Safa al-Behadli told Anadolu Agency that Daesh detonated four bomb-laden vehicles at a location where the police forces were stationed in Mosul's west side.

 

He said that two military vehicles were also destroyed in the attacks.

 

In October, the Iraqi army -- backed by U.S.-led coalition airstrikes and local allies on the ground -- began a wide-ranging operation to retake Mosul, Daesh’s last bastion in northern Iraq, which the militant group overran in 2014.
