Six members of the Federal Police were killed and seven others wounded, in an attack late at night in a remote area located 140 kilometers north of the capital, Baghdad, according to Iraqi sources.

The source, who preferred to remain anonymous, said that the attack was carried out by around 15 members of the Daesh terrorist group, as they attacked a Federal Police site after midnight on Wednesday.

He pointed out that the attack took place in the Al-Jalam area in Salah Al-Din Governorate, in an area where Daesh terrorist group cells are still active.
