3 soldiers killed in ISIL attack in western Iraq

TEHRAN, Jan. 15 (MNA) –The Daesh (ISIL) terrorist group killed three Iraqi soldiers and wounded one during an attack on Sunday evening on a military post in western Iraq, military sources said.

Alarabiya reported citing the Iraqi army sources that militants in two vehicles used snipers and semi-automatic guns in the attack on army soldiers stationed at a desert area near the town of Haditha, 190 km (120 miles) west of Baghdad.

No group has claimed responsibility for the attack, but Iraqi security and military sources said it was carried out by ISIL militants who are active in the area.

Despite the defeat of ISIL in 2017, remnants of the group switched to hit-and-run attacks against government forces in different parts of Iraq.
