A twin suicide bombing has devastated the Iraqi city of Kirkuk, for the first time since October 2016 when ISIS terrorists took over certain parts of the city from the Kurdish Peshmerga militants.

The bombing is said to be the work of an ISIS terrorist.

At the moment, there is no exact information on the casualties, however, Kirkuk Now correspondent claims to have seen at least three bodies, along with six people who were injured at the site of the attack.

Remains of ISIS suicide bomber, who reportedly targeted a taxi in Kirkuk city, were later captured on camera.

The ISIS terrorists have lost nearly all the ground and possessions in Iraq which is why they are resorting to these small-scale attacks now.

Back in October 2016, ISIS terrorists launched and offensive from within Kirkuk city and captured many buildings which they held under occupation until they got squashed several days later.

Last month, however, the city was regained by the joint coalition of the Iraqi Forces, following a brief confrontation with Peshmerga militants who were forced to flee in the end.

The city is renowned for its oil fields in the vicinity.
