ERBIL — Islamic State (IS) militants on Sunday carried out two simultaneous attacks against Hashd al-Shaabi militias in Iraq’s northern province of Nineveh.
Media reports said the headquarters of Hashd al-Shaabi’s 25th and 44th Brigades near Jazeera Hazar were targeted.
Casualties are not know.
It comes less than 24 hours after at least 11 Hashd al-Shaabi militiamen were killed in an attack by IS in Salahaddin province.
IS has significantly increased its attacks since the deadly suicide bombings inside Baghdad earlier this week that it claimed.
