  • Tikrit (Arabic: تكريت‎ Tikrīt [ˈtɪkriːt], Classical Syriac: ܬܓܪܝܬ‎ Tagriṯ, Kurdish: Tikrît‎) sometimes transliterated as Takrit or Tekrit, is a city in Iraq, located 140 kilometres (87 mi) northwest of Baghdad and 220 kilometres (140 mi) southeast of Mosul on the Tigris River. It is the administrative center of the Saladin Governorate. As of 2012, it had a population of 160,000. Under Ba'athism, Tikrit was best remembered as the hometown of Saddam Hussein, and as a power base for his regime up until the invasion of Iraq in 2003. After the invasion, the city has been the site of conflict culminating in the Second Battle of Tikrit from March through April 2015, resulting in the displacement of 28,000 civilians. The Iraqi government regained control of the city from the Islamic State on March 31, 2015. But the city was recaptured at the end of 2015 and now is in peace.
