Islamic State militants set several oil wells south of Mosul close to Qayyarah refinery in Nineveh Governorate on fire to slow down the advance of the government army, local media reported Sunday citing a source in the security services.

Militants also mined roads in the area, Sputnik News reports, referring to Shafaq News.

It comes a day after the Iraqi troops liberated the Qayyarah airbase some 60 miles south of Mosul from Daesh militants.
