ISIS attacks Iraqi federal police in south of Kirkuk, killing three – reporter

SULAIMANI (ESTA) — Islamic State (ISIS) remnants attacked Iraqi federal police in south of Kirkuk on Saturday night, killing three officers, Esta Media Network reporter said.

A group of ISIS militants attacked a military point of the Iraqi federal police in Shbeja village, south of Daquq, at 09:30 p.m., the reporter said.

Bodies of three members of the Iraqi federal police were transferred to a hospital in Daquq, the reporter added.

A number of policemen were also wounded in the attack, he noted.

In Tuz Khurmatu, the Iraqi military thwarted an ISIS attack carried out by seven militants, according to Esta’s reporter.

The Islamic State remnants have increased attacks against civilians and Iraqi forces in the disputed territories, claimed by both Erbil and Baghdad.

On Friday, ISIS militants attacked Khatab village in Makhmour in southwest of Erbil, killing four tribal fighters and injuring eight others.

In 2017 Baghdad announced victory over the militant group, and attacks in Iraqi cities have since become much rarer, although troops continue to fight ISIS sleeper cells in mountainous and desert areas.

The militants still mount deadly operations, mostly at night and in remote areas.
