Late on July 28, ISIS terrorists ambushed and killed Brig. Gen. Ahmed Abdel Wahid Mohamed al-Lami, commander of the 29th Brigade’s 7th Infantry Division of the Iraqi military.

The Iraqi Security Media Cell said Brig. Gen. al-Lami was ambushed while tracking terrorist cells in the district of Hit in the western province of al-Anbar. A first lieutenant was killed and two soldiers were also injured during the attack.

ISIS confirmed its responsibility for the attack in a statement released by its news agency Amaq on July 29. The group claimed that seven Iraqi officers and soldiers were killed.

Brig. Gen. al-Lami is the second senior officer of the Iraqi military assassinated by ISIS cells this month. On July 17, the terrorist group killed Brig. Gen. Ali Hamid Ghaidan al-Khazraji, commander of the 59th Brigade, in a well-planned ambush north of the Iraqi capital, Baghdad.

Iraqi authorities are now investigating the assassination of Brig. Gen. al-Khazraji. A similar investigation will probably be launched in connexion with the attack that claimed the life of Brig. Gen. al-Lami.

These recent assassinations indicate that ISIS cells are now tracking senior Iraqi officers. Iraqi security forces should take measures to address this new threat and protect army officers.
