On September 18, ISIS’ news agency, Amaq, shared several photos of a recent attack on Iraqi troops in the northern province of Kirkuk.
The attack, which took place in the district of Rashad on September 17, targeted a pick-up of the Popular Mobilization Units (PMU). ISIS terrorists struck the vehicle with an improvised explosive device. The terrorists then shot and killed all the fighters who were aboard the vehicle.
Amaq’s photos show the bodies of three PMU fighters who were killed in the attack. One of the photos also shows an AK-type assault rifle that was seized by the terrorists.
ISIS terrorists are highly active in Kirkuk. Earlier this month, the U.S.-led coalition and the Iraqi Air Force carried out a series of airstrikes on the group’s hideouts in different parts of the province. Human losses were reported.
Despite the airstrikes and the repeated combing operations by Iraqi government forces, ISIS is stepping up its attacks in Kirkuk. The western province of al-Anbar is also experiencing more attacks by the terrorist group.
