Iraq Daily Roundup: Seven Killed, Including Turkish Soldiers

A bomb planted in Dohuk province exploded, killing three Turkish soldiers and wounding two more. Turkey was conducting operations against Kurdistan Workers’ Party (P.K.K.) guerrilla in the area when the blast occurred.

Near Sinjar, Turkish airstrikes killed three Yazidi fighters traveling on a highway. Among them was Hassan Saeed, the local chief of the Sinjar Protection Forces. At least two other people were wounded. Turkey appears to be counting them as P.K.K. members.

A soldier was wounded during an attack in Khanaqin.

In Kirkuk, a security member was wounded during an attack at a general’s home.

ISIS attacked a police station in Qaderiya, where they wounded one officer.

During an operation in Khazna, a militant was killed.

Also, an attack on an electricity pylon in Tarmiya left no direct casualties, but it did leave the west side of Baghdad without water. Attacks on electrical grid targets have increased in recent weeks.
