Three suicide car bombs driven by ISIL fighters killed at least 15 civilians and eight Iraqi policemen on Thursday in an eastern suburb of Mosul, a military statement said.
The attacks targeted Kokjali, a suburb that authorities said they had retaken from ISIL almost two months ago. A military spokesman told Reuters news agency the vehicle bombs went off in a market.
Meanwhile, mortar fire killed 11 people – including four aid workers – as civilians gathered to receive assistance in the war-torn city of Mosul, the United Nations said on Thursday.
