On November 8, a booby-trapped car exploded in the city of Mosul killing five civilians and injuring 14 others, according to the Iraqi Security Media Center.
“The explosion happened around Suq al-Ma’ash crossroad, near a restaurant (Abu Leila) on the right side of Mousl, it resulted in many injures, some wounded were transported to the emergence section of the Republican hospital in the city,” the Security Media Center said in a short statement.
No side has claimed responsibility for the attack so far. However, Iraqi activists are certain that ISIS cells in northern province of Nineveh were behind the incident.
This was first deadly bombing in Mosul since the city was recaptured from the terrorist group last year following a 9-month battle. To this day most of the city has still been in ruins.
ISIS cells resurfaced in Mosul few months after its liberation despite strict security measures imposed there. The recent bombing is an another indication that these measures are still short from what it is needed to secure the city.
