Fresh IS Attack Leaves One Peshmerga Fighter Killed

ERBIL - The latest attack by the Islamic State (IS) militants on Kurdistan Region's Peshmerga forces in Garmiyan left at least one Kurdish fighter killed.

On Tuesday night, at around 10:00 pm, Erbil time, the Islamic State insurgents targeted a Peshmerga position in an area between the two villages of Balaga and Omar Bil, with the Kurdish forces repelling the attack.

However, a Peshmerga fighter was wounded in the attack and later succumbed to his injuries at the hospital.

The Kurdish leaders have repeatedly warned of a serious IS resurgence in various areas of Iraq, especially in those territories disputed between Erbil and Baghdad, where the jihadist group exploits a security vacuum to carry out terrorist activities.
