ISIS sets fields on fire in Kirkuk
ISIS gangs started to set the villagers’ fields on fire in Kirkuk.
ISIS gangs set fire to villagers’ fields in the Avahiya Dara, Avahiya Mansur and Heftegar villages in Heftegar, Daqok. Local sources say hundreds of hectares of wheat fields have burnt down.
ISIS gangs had demanded tribute from these villages and others by the start of Ramadan. The Avahiya Dara, Avahiya Mansur and Heftegar villages had refused to pay the tribute.
VILLAGERS PUSHED BACK ATTACKS
The gangs had attacked the three villages 3 days ago when they refused to pay tribute, and the villagers responded to the gangs’ shooting by shooting back.
One villager lost his life in the clashes that lasted 3 hours and 9 villagers were wounded. The villagers pushed back the attacks.
