ISIL attacks prompt Kirkuk city curfew

World Bulletin / News Desk

A curfew was imposed early Friday on the northern Iraqi city of Kirkuk after a number of ISIL attacks, security sources said.

ISIL extremists launched three car-bomb attacks in several neighborhoods of the city.

Two suspected ISIL suicide bombers also took control of a building formerly used as Kirkuk’s police directorate.

Kirkuk police chief Brigadier Adel Zein al-Abedin said that the attacks were carried out by ISIL “sleeper cells” and had targeted many security buildings plus the provincial administrative headquarters.

Home to Arabs, Kurds and Turkmens, Kirkuk city is being secured by Peshmerga forces of the Kurdish Regional Government in northern Iraq.
