Daesh/ISIS storms home in eastern Iraq, kills 6

Six people were killed when Daesh/ISIS terrorists stormed a home in Iraq’s eastern Diyala province, a local police officer said on Sunday.

Police Captain Jaafar al-Waeli told Anadolu Agency that the attack took place in the village of Dara, Khanaqin late Saturday.

Six people were also injured in the attack.

“Security forces this morning began a security operation to track down Daesh/ISIS operatives in the area,” he said.

In recent months, suspected Daesh/ISIS militants have stepped up attacks, particularly in the area between Kirkuk, Salahuddin (north), and Diyala (east), known as the “Triangle of Death.”

In 2017, Iraq declared victory over Daesh/ISIS by reclaiming all of its territory – about a third of the country’s area – invaded by the terrorist group in 2014.

However, the terrorist group still maintains sleeper cells in large areas of Iraq and periodically launches attacks.
