MOSUL, Iraq

At least one person was killed and two others injured in a terror attack by the Daesh/ISIS terror group in northern Iraq, a security official said on Monday. 

Ahmad al-Ubeydi, a captain in the Iraqi army, told Anadolu Agency that the attack was carried out in a rural area of the Mosul province.

He added that the attack targeted a house and killed one person and injured two others from the same family.

In late 2017, officials in Baghdad declared that the military presence of Daesh/ISIS in Iraq had been all but destroyed.

But the terrorists still have a presence in the rural areas of Anbar, Diyala, Kirkuk, Saladin and Mosul.

The Iraqi army continues to carry out frequent operations against the group in these parts of the country.
