2 more mass graves found in Hawija

Hawija (IraqiNews.com) Iraqi paramilitary forces have run into two more mass graves as Iraq declared the recapture of Islamic State stronghold Hawija, southwest of Kirkuk.

The Popular Mobilization Forces’ media said Thursday the two mass graves were wounded in southwestern Hawija, adding that the relics belonged to both security members and civilians including women and children.

PMFs have recently run into three mass graves of security members executed by Islamic State militants at the villages of Abu Sakhra and al-Therban, also southwest of Hawija, as operations proceeded to clear the town.

Iraq’s Joint Operations Command said earlier on Thursday its forces seized back Hawija after three years of occupation by Islamic State.
