Suspected Islamic State (IS) militants kill eight people in separate attacks in Nineveh and Salah Al-Din provinces May 9; similar attacks possible in northern Iraq over the coming weeks

TIMEFRAME expected from 9/5/2019, 12h00 until 16/5/2019, 11h59 (Asia/Baghdad). COUNTRY/REGION Nineveh province, Salahuddin province

Event

On Thursday, May 9, suspected Islamic State (IS) militants killed at least eight people in separate attacks in Nineveh and Salah Al-Din provinces. IS gunmen reportedly stormed the house of the mayor of Al-Gawar village (Nineveh province), killing him, his wife, and four of his children. In Salah Al-Din province, suspected IS militants shot and killed one person at a mill and set fire to the structure near Shirqat; an IS-planted roadside bomb also detonated at the site as security forces arrived, killing a soldier.

Similar attacks are possible in northern Iraq over the coming weeks.

Context

While former Iraqi Prime Minister Haider al-Abadi claimed victory over the Islamic State (IS) group in December 2017, the group retains a degree of freedom of movement in parts of the country, particularly in western and northern Iraq. 

Advice

Individuals in northern Iraq are advised to report suspicious objects and behavior to the police, remain vigilant for militant activity, and adhere to any instructions issued by the local authorities and their home governments.

The security environment in Iraq remains complex. Professional security advice and support should be sought prior to all travel.
