For the third time in a month, a veiled woman has shot dead Islamic State fighters in Mosul.
“A veiled woman carrying a pistol killed two fighters of the Islamic State (ISIS/ISIL), in the early hours of the morning, near a checkpoint in the vicinity of Numaniya neighborhood in the city of Mosul. This phenomenon has raised ISIS concerns during the past weeks,” says a report from the news outlet Al-Sumaria quoted by Iraqi News.
ISIS has warned its fighters in the al-Sharqat area, which the terror group has controlled since June 2014.
Iraq forces, with U.S. air support, are currently advancing on Mosul and preparing to retake the city.
