Diyala (IraqiNews.com) Head of Mukdadiyah District Council, Adnan al-Tamimi, announced on Sunday, that the Islamic State launched an armed attack on checkpoints belonging to al-Hashd al-Ashaeri, northeast of Baqubah.

Tamimi, in a press statement, said, “The Islamic State launched a violent armed attack on checkpoints belonging to al-Hashd al-Ashaeri in the villages of Albu Mousa and al-Lahib, north of Muqdadiyah,” adding that, “The attack was launched from the nearby Hud al-Zour area.”

“The clashes are ongoing, however, the fighters of al-Hashd al-Ashaeri are steadfast in their position,” Tamimi further added.

“Hud al-Zour area lacks any security presence, which makes it easy target for the Islamic State,” Tamimi explained.
