The latest attack of its kind was the killing of 50 Iraqi soldiers and wounding tens, as reported by a number of Iraqi parliamentarians on 12 March, 2015.

The tunnels' wars, or the so called "Death Tunnels", were extended below Iraqi military sites or camps.

In one of the cases, a tunnel was dug below the house of pro-government Sahwa (Awakening) leader Hameed al-Hayes, which was an obstacle to reach other areas in Ramadi.

Da'ish gunmen dug a tunnel with a length of 1500 meters within 30 days, which was supplied with air ventilation and electricity.

According to available information, Da'ish gunmen reached their destination and completed their missions.

The outcome of the explosion was more than 50 casualties of the security and Sahwa forces, including military officers, the sources added.
