The jihadists of the Islamic State (IS) carried out an attack on the Iraqi federal police forces in the disputed Kurdish province of Kirkuk on Tuesday night.
A police source told Kurdistan 24 that the incident occurred near the village of Hatin located between Kirkuk and Dubiz at around 8:20 pm, Erbil time.
Clashes erupted between the federal police and militants, as a result of which two policemen were injured, the source explained.
The two were identified as Ali Adil and Ahmed Awad, who were taken to the hospital.
A manhunt operation was soon launched in search for the insurgents, but they had already escaped the scene.
