Erbil (Iraq): At least 12 people, including a member of a Kurdish force, were killed in an attack by Islamic State (ISIS) terrorists in a village in northern Iraq. Kurdish media reported this news on Friday. State broadcaster Ruda said on its website that the attack took place late Thursday in a village in the Makhmour region, leading to a clash with Kurdish Peshmerga forces.
Nine Peshmerga and three civilians were among those killed. However, Islamic State has not claimed responsibility for the attack. Other details were also not immediately available.
IS was defeated on the battlefield in 2017 but attacks targeting Iraqi security forces, including Kurdish Peshmerga fighters, are common. Terrorists are active in many areas.
The Peshmerga is the Kurdish division of the Iraqi Armed Forces.
They are the tactical powers of Iraq’s autonomous Kurdistan Region.
Haider Jawad Kadhim al-Abadi had declared victory against the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS) in July 2017, when Mosul city was collapsed to Iraqi forces.
However, some remaining elements are spreading chaos and havoc to penetrate security forces and civilians in order to expand further control in the strategic constituencies of Iraq and Syria.
Today national and international Organizations are coming to Iraq for a pilgrim, investment and to participate in exhibitions.
People exhausted from terrorism and some menaces have breathed a sigh of relief
