Explosive device left by YBS damages a civilian's vehicle in Sinjar

Shafaq News / An explosive device blew up damaging a civilian's vehicle in Sinjar on Monday, a security source reported.

The source told Shafaq News agency that the explosive device was planted on the side of the road, noting that no human losses were recorded.

He added that the device was left by YBS forces, which planted bombs and explosive devices inside houses, neighborhoods, and roads, during their clashes with the Iraqi army in the last few days.

Violent skirmishes took place in Sinjar earlier this month, after YBS refused to exit the district in implementation of the Sinjar agreement.

On October 9, Baghdad and Erbil reached an agreement to normalize the situation in Sinjar, according to which the district will be jointly administrated.

ISIS invaded Sinjar district in 2014 and committed a massacre against its residents, before the Peshmerga forces regained it the following year.

However, the Iraqi army backed by Al-Hashd Al-Shaabi forces invaded the region due to the tension between Erbil and Baghdad against the independence referendum held in 2017.

There are currently two local governments for Sinjar, one of which was appointed by the federal government authorities, and the second is the elected government, which is running its business from Duhok governorate.

The PKK reject repeated calls from the Kurdistan Region to leave its territory, which gets subjected to Turkish attacks that impede the return of tens of thousands of displaced Yazidis to their homes.
