6 Iraqi policemen killed in IS attack

Digital Desk, Baghdad. Six police officers were killed and several injured in an attack by the Islamic State (IS) group in Iraq’s Salahuddin province.

Provincial police officer Youssef al-Zaidi told Xinhua news agency on Wednesday that the attack occurred late Tuesday when IS militants attacked a federal police base in the Matebiza area in the eastern part of the province. After this there was a fierce clash between the two sides.

Al-Zaidi said the militants fled the scene when more forces were called in. There is no information about how many terrorists were killed in this incident.

The security situation in Iraq has improved significantly since the defeat of IS in 2017. However, some of its militants have penetrated into urban areas, deserts and are conducting intermittent attacks.
