IS Stages Deadly Attack on Iraqi Security Forces

Police and military officials on Monday said a series of suicide car bombings by Islamic State militants targeting a military outpost in Anbar Province have killed eight soldiers and injured six.
The sources said the Monday morning attack west of Anbar’s provincial capital Ramadi involved three vehicles, including two fuel trucks, AP reported.
The outpost was home to a joint contingent of army soldiers, policemen and allied Sunni militiamen.
The officials spoke on condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to speak to the media.
Late on Sunday, the Iraqi military said in a televised statement its warplanes had targeted IS positions in northern and western Iraq in what it called “qualitative” strikes, including one that targeted a meeting by members of the extremist group in the town of Tel Afar.
The US and its allies stage daily airstrikes on IS targets in the group’s self-declared caliphate based in Iraq and Syria. A drone strike last month killed a senior IS leader in its Syrian stronghold of Raqqa.
However, despite more than 5,500 airstrikes since August 8, 2014 that have killed an estimated 15,000 IS insurgents, it is estimated the group still has 20,000 to 31,500 fighters as new recruits flow into the region.
