Seven Iraqi security personnel were killed in northern Iraq

Baghdad, November 21, Iraqi police officials said on the 21st that seven Iraqi security personnel were killed in an attack in northern Iraq’s Salahudin province. In an interview with reporters, Mohamed Bazi, a police official of Salah al DIN Province, said that the local police and Sunni militiamen were attacked by a group of suspected extremist organization “Islamic state” when they demolished a roadside bomb in the northern part of Baiji city in the province that night. Three police officers and four militia members were killed and two police officers were injured in the fighting between the two sides. The attackers then fled to a nearby mountain area, their casualties unknown. However, there are still some “leftovers” of Islamic attacks in Iraq in December 2017.
