At least 13 police officers have been killed in an ISIS attack in Iran’s Northern Kirkuk governorate.
Security forces say that the militants attacked federal police troops in Al-Rashad district of the governorate. A senior Iraqi police officer said that three others were wounded. However there was no immediate claim of responsibility.
Militant cells regularly target the Iraqi army and the police in the Northern Iraq. But this was one of the deadliest attacks of the year.
