In Iraq, 15 people were killed including women and children. The incident happened on Saturday when a group of ISIS terrorists attacked a village in Iraq’s Salahudin province, a security official said. About 20 ISIS terrorists attacked Mseihly village, some 280 km north of the Iraqi capital of Baghdad, sparking heavy clashes with the paramilitary Sunni tribal fighters at the village, said reports.
The number of victims comprised 10 villagers, which included three women, a child and also five ISIS terrorists said the source.
As per reports, the attackers infiltrated from the ISIS-held eastern bank of Shirqat across the Tigris River, which bisects the town, the source added.
This attack comes soon after Friday’s attack where suicide bombers killed at least 31 people and wounded 35 in two separate attacks in Iraq, one at the main bus station in the Shi’ite holy city of Karbala and on in a crowded market in the town of Musayyib.
