Multiple suicide attacks kill 12 Iraqi troops, militiamen outside Haditha
“A series of suicide attacks by the Islamic State group outside a town in Iraq’s western Anbar province on Tuesday killed 12 soldiers and allied Sunni militiamen, military and hospital officials said.
They said the attack began when IS militants shelled army and militia positions outside the town of Haditha with mortars. They followed up with two suicide bombers who blew themselves up near the troops and later with three suicide car bombings. Five soldiers and three Sunni tribesmen were wounded in the attacks, the officials said.”
