IS Female Health Official Stabbed to Death in Hawija

ERBIL— A Sudanese-British Islamic State (IS) female physician who also ran the health office of the organization in Hawija was stabbed to death on Sunday in the town, south of Kirkuk.  

An informed official from Kirkuk, who demanded anonymity, was quoted by Iraqi al-Sumaria news as saying that an unidentified group who had niqab on their faces attacked the female doctor in her office in Hawija.

The doctor, who was labeled by the source as the “most important IS female doctor”, arrived in Nineveh one and half year ago and settled in Hawija, which is still held by the IS.
