Islamic State kills 27 Iraqi security personnel in Kirkuk

(Worthy News) – Islamic State militants ambushed a convoy and killed at least 27 Iranian-backed Popular Mobilization Forces fighters in Iraq, the militia said.

The PMF said IS set up a fake checkpoint by disguising themselves as police officers and using poor weather conditions to carry out the ambush in Kirkuk province Sunday.

IS took responsibility for the ambush in its own statement, saying it killed 20 Iraqi security personnel and burnt five vehicles. [ Source: UPI (Read More…) ]
