When Saddam was found by the 4th Infantry Division, he was hiding only a few miles from his hometown in the town of ad-Dawr. Saddam Hussein was buried in this village before dawn on December 31, 2006, less than 24 hours after his execution took place for his major responsibility in crimes against humanity in Iraq.
During the fighting in the Second Battle of Tikrit, Saddam Hussein's tomb was levelled by ISIL. After Iraqi forces took the control of the village, Shia militiamen of the Popular Mobilization Committee put Shia militia's insignia around the village, including that of Maj. Gen. Qassem Soleimani.
