SULAIMANI — At least one Iraqi soldier was killed and four others were wounded in a mortar attack by Islamic State (ISIS) militants in western Khanaqin district on Thursday (August 6), according to a security source.

The source told NRT Digital Media that the attack targeted a military post in Khanaqin’s Sherk village guarded by the First Regiment of the Commando Brigade of Iraqi Army.

ISIS uses the disputed areas as a base of operations to attack civilian and military targets in Nineveh, Saladin, Kirkuk, and Diyala governorates.
