ISIS roadside bomb killed two Iraqi troops in northern Iraq
Two Iraqi policemen were killed in a bomb blast in Iraq’s northern Saladin province on Sunday, according to a local police officer.
A police vehicle struck a roadside bomb south of Al-Shirqat town in northern Saladin, Police Lieutenant Salahuddin al-Jabbouri told Anadolu Agency.
He said four other police personnel were injured in the attack.
Though no group has yet claimed responsibility for the bombing, Iraqi authorities usually blame the Daesh terrorist group for that kind of attacks.
In the summer of 2014, Daesh overran much of northern and western Iraq.
After a three-year war, the Iraqi government declared late in 2017 that Daesh’s military presence in Iraq had been all but ended through operations backed by a U.S.-led international alliance.
