According to Iraqi police sources, members of the self declared “Islamic State” have shelled a refugee camp with mortar fire in northern Salahaddin, killing 12 people and injuring dozens.
The camp, most likely populated by Sunni refugees (the very people IS claims to protect) was attacked from positions in the nearby town of Shirqat, some of which is still under partial IS control. IS have been attacking and terrorizing Sunni refugees (as well as refugees from other Iraqi communities) who have attempted to flee areas under their control, possibly seeing this as a betrayal of their project to make a nation state.
