ISIS militants set fire on oil wells in the Iraqi town of al-Qayyarah

Militants of the terrorist Islamic State (IS) set oil wells on fire in the Iraqi town of al-Qayyarah, following last week’s defeat and their forced withdrawal from the area.

The terror group ignited the wells in order to retreat under the cover of dense black smoke and to obstruct the progress of the advancing Iraqi forces.

The local population tried to spread sand on the burning oil spills in the streets of the city, Tuesday (August 30th) to ease the severity of the flames and columns of smoke.
