IS Bombs Two Oil Wells in Northern Iraq

MOSUL, Iraq The Islamic State jihadist group bombed two oil wells in the last hours in the Iraqi strategic town of al-Qayyarah, 50 kilometers (31 miles) south of the northern city Mosul, the main stronghold of IS in Iraq.

Governor of al-Qayyarah, Saleh Hassan al-Jaburi, told EFE that IS put explosives in the two wells Sunday night and detonated them, causing fire with huge flames and thick columns of smoke.

On Sept. 28, the jihadist group blew up three oil wells in al-Qayyarah.

IS carries out explosions in oilfields to hinder the visibility of enemy warplanes with smoke and try to stop the advance of Iraqi troops that drove jihadists away from this area in late August.

Taking control of al-Qayyarah in the province of Nineveh is key to the start of the final offensive to liberate Mosul, the capital of IS in Iraq.
