ISIS attacks kill seven security forces in Iraq: police

TIKRIT/SULAIMANIYA, Iraq (Reuters) – At least seven members of Iraq’s security forces were killed and 16 wounded overnight in two separate attacks by ISIS terrorists, police said on Thursday.

Three members of the paramilitary Popular Mobilisation Forces (PMF) and two policemen were killed in an attack in the Sayed Gharib area north of Salahuddin province’s Dujail district, 50 km (30 miles) north of Baghdad, late on Wednesday, police said.

The PMF is an umbrella grouping of mostly Iran-backed Shi’ite militias that formally report to Iraq’s prime minister.

Separately, a mortar attack against Kurdish forces in Kola Jawi village of Sulaimaniya province’s Kalar district at midnight killed two members of the semi-autonomous Kurdistan Regional Government’s Asayish internal security forces and wounded 14, an Asayish source said.
