Suspected ISIS militants blow up oil well in Kirkuk
Suspected ISIS gunmen on Saturday detonated explosive devices at an oil well in Kirkuk province in northern Iraq, according to a local police officer.

The officer told Anadolu Agency that ISIS terrorists were likely behind the attack that targeted well No. 105 in the Bai Hassan oilfield in Al-Dibs district, northwest of the Kurdish- majority city of Kirkuk.
"Work is ongoing to extinguish the fire that broke out after the bombing," said the officer, who requested not to be named as he was not authorized to brief the media.
There was no comment yet from Iraqi officials on the attack.
Meanwhile the Iraqi oil ministry said the militants using explosives attacked two oil wells northwest of Kirkuk but no significant damage resulted and production was not affected.
The attack at the Bay Hassan oilfield “did not cause a fire or damage, affect production or stop oil pumping from the well,” the ministry said in a statement.
Kirkuk province has the oilfields of Bai Hassan, Baba Gurgur, and Havana, which together produce more than 370,000 barrels per day.
ISIS terrorists have in recent months escalated their attacks, especially in the area between Kirkuk, Salahuddin and Diyala, known as the Triangle of Death.
In 2017, Iraq declared victory over ISIS by reclaiming all territories the terrorist group controlled since the summer of 2014 which was estimated to be about a third of the country.
