AL-TABQA- In order to implement their schemes which aim at spreading ignorance and illiteracy wherever they settled, IS mercenaries turned most of al-Tabqa city’s schools into centers to spread their subversive acts; the city’s schools were turned into security centers or factories to make bombs and improvised explosive devices.
A school in al-Wahib neighborhood south of al-Tabqa city was turned to a dangerous headquarter of the mercenaries where explosive devices were made; within this school, thousands of explosive devices and bombs were found, in addition to hundreds of pounds of raw materials to these explosives.
ANHA reporters visiting Omar al-Mukhtar school which was one of the most important security centers to IS, from this center, bombs were being spread to the city.
