ISIS Attacks “Liberated” Area of Mosul; 2 Dead, 7 Wounded


Two civilians are dead and at least seven are wounded — including children — after an ISIS attack on a Mosul neighborhood previously declared “liberated” from the militants, Iraqi army officials told CNN on Wednesday.

The officials said at least four mortars landed in the eastern Mosul neighborhood of al Zahraa, which was declared under the full control of Iraqi security forces nearly a week ago.

Witnesses also told CNN there had been civilian deaths and injuries from the attacks.

Video of the aftermath broadcast by local Kurdish TV station Rudaw showed several of the injured, including children with bloody wounds.
