Major Islamic State Attack Blocked

Reuters news agency reports today that Iraq’s armed forces blocked a major wave of attacks by Islamic State suicide bombers outside the Old City of Mosul on Sunday. The attacks targeted the last Islamic State stronghold in Hay al-Tanak, a poor neighborhood west of the Old City. It is the first wave of attacks reported outside the Old City since the battle to capture the historic district from the Islamic State started a week ago.
