 Another 45 bodies of victims killed by Islamic state have been found in Iraq


He said there were 45 bodies in the cemetery, and forensic medicine would conduct DNA identification to identify them.

In 2014, the Islamic state took full control of Mosul, Salah din and Anbar provinces, and occupied parts of Diyala and Kirkuk provinces. It took Iraqi security forces several years to recapture it.

The Islamic state has left dozens of mass graves in its controlled areas, killing and burying thousands of opponents.

In 2017, Iraq declared its victory over the Islamic state and recovered all the territory occupied by the organization, accounting for about one third of Iraqs territory. However, the group still lurks in large areas of Iraq and carries out regular attacks.

According to a statistics of the UN mission in Iraq in 2018, 202 mass graves were found, with 6000 to 12000 victims buried.
