Takfiri militants of the so-called Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIL) have fired a volley of rockets



Takfiri militants of the so-called Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIL) have fired a volley of rockets at a revered Shia shrine in the Iraqi city of Samarra, and injured several people.At least three rockets fired by the Takfiri hit the shrine complex on Monday Today morning as the militants continue waging acts of violence and terrorism in the Arab country. The attack injured at least nine innocent Iraqi citizens.Following the attack, the deputy head of the Samarra municipal council said the shells struck a reception area near the gate of the holy shrine.
Reports also said that the Iraqi Air Force responded to the attack and destroyed the site from where the rockets were launched.The militant attack came just two days after government forces cleared militants out of an area near Samarra.The city, located nearly 120 kilometers (74 miles) north of Baghdad, is home to the holy shrines of two Shia Imams and a major pilgrimage site visited by tens of millions of Muslims annually despite the tense security situation in the area.
