11 Soldiers Killed in Iraq by IS Jihadists: Authorities

Eleven Iraqi soldiers were killed in an overnight attack by the Islamic State group against their base in the eastern province of Diyala.

The attack took place “around 2:30 am (2330 GMT) against a base in the Hawi al-Azim area,” the source added.

Diyala province governor Muthanna al-Tamimi confirmed the death toll, according to the Iraqi News Agency.

A UN report last year estimated that around 10,000 IS fighters remained active across Iraq and Syria.
