ISIS Booby-Traps Copies of Holy Quran in Diyala, Iraq

SHAFAQNA - After capturing the main ISIL base in the Eastern Diyala province, Iraqi security forces found a series of Qurans (Muslims holy book) which were booby-trapped with explosives by the rebels, Head of the security committee in Diyala Sadeq Hosseini said. 

Hosseini said that the Iraqi forces backed by the Shiite Hashed al-Shaabi volunteer forces found the explosive Qurans inside houses, buildings and military bases. 

Similar booby-trapped Qurans were repeatedly found after the liberation of the Diyala areas of Saadia and Jalawla in December. 

Most of Diyala is now under the control of the Iraqi government or Kurdish factions.
