Iraqi Forces Thwart IS Plot to Attack Power Transmission Towers

ERBIL - Iraqi security forces on Monday managed to thwart an Islamic State (IS) plot to attack power transmission towers in Diyala province, a statement has said.

The Intelligence and Investigation Agency of the Iraqi Ministry of Interior said in a statement that its forces dismantled explosives prepared by the IS jihadists to target two transmission towers.

It came only hours after unidentified men exploded a couple of power transmission towers (44-45) on the outskirts of the village Daoud al-Salem in the Hashmiyat area, a source told Shafaq News.

The maintenance teams began repairing the damaged towers, the source noted, adding that the attack, however, caused a power outage in large areas of Diyala and the outskirts of Baghdad.
