    Violence Erupts as Islamic State Rises (1881)

    Daesh militants have started removing computers and documents from the Daesh-controlled Iraq's city of Mosul as it has come under attack from Iraqi forces, according to a source in the city.

    MOSCOW (Sputnik) — Militants have started relocating computers and folders containing data on militants and the organization's plans to commit terrorist attacks, from Mosul to the Syrian city Raqqa, Shafaq News reported.

    The terrorist group has also reportedly changed the location of some of its headquarters in Mosul after Iraqi forces and the international US-led coalition destroyed prominent Daesh command posts, according to the source.

    Mosul, the second largest Iraqi city, populated by about 500,000 people, was seized by Daesh, outlawed in many countries including Russia, and turned into one of its strongholds in 2014.
