ERBIL (Kurdistan24) - The Iraqi Directorate of General Military Intelligence (DGMI) has uncovered a large underground tunnel connecting the town of Tal Afar and the mountains of al-A'ayaziyah sub-district in western Mosul.

In a statement, the DGMI detailed, "After receiving detailed information, we have discovered a large tunnel near Tal Afar and the mountains of al-A'ayaziyah sub-district, extending over 500 meters."

The tunnel, constructed by ISIS terrorists, was used to transport weapons, equipment, and military supplies. Several military supplies were found within the tunnel, which has since been destroyed by intelligence engineering teams, who also removed all the supplies.
