PANAGYURISHTE, (BM) – Your briefly report on June 26 in last 12 hours from BulgarianMilitary.com news team:
Bomb blast kills four Iraqi federal police officers – security sources
Four Iraqi federal police officers were killed on Tuesday after a bomb went off southwest of the oil-rich city of Kirkuk, two security sources told Reuters.
The blast took place near the village of Habat, which lies about 40 km (25 miles) southwest of Kirkuk, on the border between Rashad and Daquq districts.
There was no immediate claim of responsibility, but Islamic State militants are active in the area. Iraq declared victory over the group, which once held large swathes of the country, in December 2017.
But Islamic State has since switched to hit-and-run attacks aimed at undermining the Baghdad government.
