Kurdish party office in Mosul turned into car-bomb workshop by ISIS28/12/2016
MOSUL, Iraq--The former office of the Patriotic Union of Kurdistan (PUK) in the Taamim neighborhood of Mosul has fallen to the Iraqi army two years after ISIS militants took the city.
The place has been used by the radical militants for making and preparing car bombs. Its structure has also been damaged, almost beyond recognition, perhaps set on fire before its turning into a workshop.
Before the ISIS takeover of Mosul in 2014, several Kurdish parties maintained offices in the city, mainly in the eastern part of the city where Iraqi troops have now been battling ISIS for more than two months.
