At least 13 people have been killed in an attack by IS militants on a village in northern Iraq


Iraqi semi-autonomous regional authorities say at least 13 people, including three villagers and 10 Kurdish soldiers, were killed Friday in an attack by Islamic State militants on a village in northern Iraq.

In a statement issued by the Armed Forces of the Kurdistan Region (Bishmerka), “ISIS” members attacked the village early Friday morning, killing three residents. Bischoff forces intervened, leading to clashes that left at least seven of its soldiers dead.

Kurdish security officials and hospitals said the final death toll was at least 10 Peshmerga soldiers and three villagers.

The attack took place in the Makhmour district, which is the main operation of the organization and sees regular attacks on Kurdish and Iraqi forces and often civilians.

Makhmur, a mountainous region, is located 70 km southeast of Mosul and 60 km southwest of Erbil, the capital of the Kurdistan Region.
