However, the IWMC says he was wounded in an airstrike on Barwana and was transported to Hit, a couple of days ago, then to a hideout in Mosul by Daesh. He is regarded as the second most important name in the Daesh organization. [Sumaria] [Rudaw] [Mada]


The IWMC says the IAF bombed Daesh fighters trying to sneak into Barwana in Haditha, killing 18. [Baghdadia]

Daesh has used a new tactic in its recent attacks in Haditha, says an Anbar GC source. The recent attacks were made by infantry without using any vehicles, as in yesterday’s attack from Al-Khasfa area on Haditha, repelled by Army and tribal forces.

Daesh says Coalition warplanes destroyed a library on the west side of Shirqat (video). [A3maq] [Sendvid]

DaeshDaily comment. Daesh didn’t shell the shrines previously because it feared massive Shia retaliation against Sunnis in Baghdad and other areas, which would cause Daesh to lose even more support among Sunni Iraqis. However, Daesh seems desperate for a quick media victory after its recent defeats. 


The BOC said that today its troops in the Thirthar area killed 26 terrorists and two suicide attackers. It destroyed six trucks mounted with machine guns, killing four men inside. It also eliminated a heavy machine gun crew, a Daesh position, and a bridge used by Daesh. [BOC Facebook Page]

800 Yazidi children are being “trained” by Daesh in its training camps, said an official of KRG’s Kidnapped Yazidis office today. He says Daesh is holding over 3,000 Yazidis as prisoners.  [Sumaria]


The PR director of the KRG Ministry of Endowment, Meriwan Naqshbandi, said he withdrew from a forum for Sunni clerics held in Erbil because the meeting failed to raise the Iraqi and Kurdish flags and failed to praise Peshmerga forces’ efforts in providing support to tens of thousands of Sunni Arabs. [Sumaria]

DaeshDaily comment. The explanation likely is that the organizers are anti-government clerics who paved the way for Daesh advances in Iraq, and some are still strong Daesh supporters. PM Abadi opened the door for national reconciliation, but there are some people who still refuse even the slightly revised Iraqi flag and think Iraq should go back to the Saddam days. Why the KRG would host such a group is a good question.



Babel. Young men in Babel Governorate working to rebuild Sunni mosques destroyed by unknown attackers in Hilla have raised the slogan “I am a Shia . . . Tell the Sunnis that I love them.” [Sumaria]




Turkish Prime Minister Ahmet Davutoğlu said in a press conference on Thursday that the Turkish-Iraqi border represented a threat to Turkish national security and said Turkey was coordinating militarily with the United States to confront the dangers.

The remarks come amid deadly fighting between Turkey and the PKK on the Turkish side of the border and amid advances by the Syria Democratic Forces, among which the YPG, the PYD militia, is the dominant fighting force, across the Euphrates River into Daesh-held territory in the eastern Aleppo countryside in northwest Syria, which would seem to violate Turkey’s “red line.” [ARA]


Turkish police have arrested a suspect implicated in the murder of Syrian journalist Naji Jeref in Gazientep in late December. The Antep Governorate released a statement on Thursday saying that after analysis of footage from 337 surveillance cameras of the suspects, followed by analysis of the movements of taxis identified in the footage and the questioning of taxi drivers, the authorities were able to identify two suspects whose shoes and hair bore resemblance to what had been observed in the surveillance footage. Upon arresting one man, the police searched his residence, finding explosives, detonators, firearms and ammunition, and clothes that the suspect allegedly was seen removing in surveillance video when fleeing the scene of the murder. Earlier reports suggested that the Turkish police had made more than one arrest but the Antep statement mentions only one. The statement does not mention the nationality or background of the suspect.

Deadly blast at Zliten training camp

Daesh has claimed responsibility for a deadly suicide truck bombing that killed and injured scores of police recruits in the coastal town of Zliten, west of Misrata.  Approximately 500 cadets were present in the police training center on a former military base, when an unidentified attacker drove a large explosives-laden truck through the training field entrance and detonated the payload. Differing reports have described the truck as a “water tanker” or a “fire engine.”

The death toll from today’s bombing has been reported as high as 74 victims and will likely climb, with the injured numbering as many as 127. A medical source said only 23 of the victims had been identified so far, and appealed to residents of the city for donations of blood to treat the wounded.
