IS Attacks Iraqi Army in Diyala, Injures One

ERBIL — Islamic State (IS) militants on Monday night attacked the Iraqi Army soldiers and local tribal forces outside Khanaqin, Diyala province.

The surprise attack left at least one officer injured, according to Diyala Police Spokesperson Nihad Mohammed.

The attack took place near Hatawin village, Mohammed added, saying that the jihadists managed to escape before the reinforcement arrived.

This came less than 24 hours after a bomb blast by IS killed one Iraqi soldier and injured two others in the same province.
