The Siniya refinery was reopened in 2017 after damages caused by Daesh* terrorists had been repaired. It has a capacity of 20,000 barrels per day.

Daesh* has claimed responsibility for the attack on an oil refinery in Iraq, a statement released by the group says. 

Two Katyusha rockets were used in the attack, the statement added.
