Mosul, IRAQ — At least fifteen people were reportedly killed on Sunday morning when a booby-trap exploded in a school building just west of Mosul, according to a top military source.

Dargham al-Mawla, an army captain, told the Anadolu Agency that 15 people, including 12 members of the Tribal Mobilization, which is a Sunni, pro-government paramilitary force, were killed while at least 23 other people were seriously wounded when a booby-trap exploded inside a school building in Magarn, a village falling between the town of Badush and Tal Afar.

Al-Mawla said the school’s building had been handed over to Tribal Mobilization commanders to be used for training purposes. He added that some of the school rooms were booby-trapped with explosive devices, Mohamed Mostafa at Iraqi News reported.

Iraqi government forces claimed the recapture of Mosul early July, ending a nine-month campaign to bring down the birthplace of Islamic State militants’ self-styled “caliphate” which was declared back in 2014. Since the declaration, security forces have embarked in a campaign to clear the city from remnant ISIS cells and a number of occasional attacks against troops and civilians has been reported.

Iraqi commanders had said the extremist group lost up to 30,000 of its fighters during the Mosul campaign. Prime Minister Haider al-Abadi said Saturday up to 1260 civilians were killed in the battle.

Since July, over 2,000 bodies have been excavated in the western part of Mosul, after the city was cleared from Daesh in June, an Iraqi official said on Friday.

Terrible.

God Bless.
