Eleven Iraqi army soldiers were killed in a night attack on their base in Diyala province (east) attributed to the Islamic State (IS) group, according to information from a military source released on Friday (January 21st).

“Eleven soldiers, including a lieutenant, were killed in an attack carried out by members of the IS (…) targeting an army base”, said, on condition of anonymity, a senior official. soldier stationed in Diyala, a region where jihadist cells are still active.

The attack took place “around 2:30 am (2330 GMT Thursday) against a base in the Hawi al-Azim region”, located not far from the province of Salaheddine, he continued.

The governor of Diyala, Mouthanna al-Tamimi, confirmed this assessment to the Iraqi news agency INA. He criticized “the soldiers’ negligence as the base is fortified. There is a thermal camera, night vision goggles and a concrete watchtower”.

Recurring attacks

After a meteoric rise in power in 2014 in Iraq and neighboring Syria and the conquest of vast territories, the IS saw its self-proclaimed “caliphate” waver under the blow of successive offensives in these two countries.

Iraq declared its “victory” against the IS jihadists at the end of 2017. But they remain a threat and continue to carry out ad hoc attacks against villagers and security forces in the north of the country, particularly in the region of Kirkuk and in the provinces of Salaheddine and Diyala.

The jihadists are also targeting Kurdish peshmerga fighters. On December 6, four of them were killed in the attack attributed to the IS of the outpost they held north of Kirkuk.

The last major attack claimed by IS in Iraq targeted a market in the Shiite district of Sadr City in Baghdad in July 2021, which killed around 30 people.
