IS terrorists attack in Iraq, 10 civilians killed, 12 injured

10 civilians were killed and 12 others injured on Tuesday in an attack by Islamic State (IS) group militants in Iraq's eastern province of Diyala. Ala al-Saadi of the provincial police gave this information to Xinhua.
"The latest reports say that ten people were killed and 12 were injured in an IS attack in the village of al-Rashad," he said.

In an earlier report, al-Saadi said the attack took place in the evening when IS militants fired sniper rifles at a group of civilians in the village of al-Rashad, about 110 kilometers northeast of the Iraqi capital, Baghdad. He said Iraqi security forces arrived at the scene and launched a search operation in the area in search of the attackers.

Over the past months, IS militants have intensified their attacks on Iraqi security forces in provinces previously controlled by militants, killing and wounding dozens.

The security situation in Iraq has been improving since Iraqi forces defeated IS in 2017. However, the remnants of IS have since melted away in urban centres, deserts and rugged areas, launching frequent guerilla attacks against security forces and civilians.
