KUWAIT CITY, Feb 9: On Tuesday morning, an explosive device, which is one of the remnants of the war, in the Rawa desert of Anbar Governorate in West Iraq, exploded, killing four Iraqis, including three soldiers and a civilian. However, the Kuwaiti hunters at the scene managed to survive, reports Al-Rai daily.

According to informed sources, four hunters were on a hunting trip with special protection from the Iraqi army. They went to the Rawa desert in Anbar Governorate, some areas of which are deemed as “relatively unsafe” due to the presence of explosive devices planted during the days of the war against the ISIS terrorist organization several years ago. The device that exploded was planted on the side of the road near the security berm surrounding Rawa desert. The first car carrying the soldiers and a medical employee collided with the device, which exploded and killed them. None of the Kuwaitis who were in the second car were hurt
