On August 28, ISIS news agency, Amaq, released photos of a recent attack by the group’s terrorists on the Iraqi Federal Police.
The attack, which took place on August 26, targeted a post of the Federal Police in the district of Hawija in the northern province of Kirkuk. ISIS terrorists raided the post after targeting it with light machine guns as well as rocket-propelled grenades.
According to Amaq, a police officer was injured in the attack. A thermal surveillance camera installed at the post was also destroyed.
ISIS cells are highly active in Kirkuk, especially in Hawija. Earlier this week, the terrorists were arrested in the district by the Federal Police. Loads of weapons and ammunition were also uncovered.
Iraqi government forces are making immense effort to combat ISIS threat. However, the group’s influence appears to be expanding. The country’s northern and western region are witnessing more and more terrorist attacks.
