Iraqi Forces Ambush, Kill IS Militant in Diyala

ERBIL — Iraqi security forces on Thursday ambushed a militant of the Islamic State (IS) in Diyala province, a local official said.

Based on previous intelligence, the security forces set up an ambush outside Sharaban district of Diyala, where they killed one IS militant, head of Sharaban mayoral council told BasNews.

“The security forces had received intelligence indicating IS movements in the area where a security vacuum allowed them to mobilize forces,” he added.

BasNews previously reported that security forces had captured four IS members operating as part of a sleeper cell in Kirkuk, and another IS militant in Riyadh, west of Kirkuk province.
