IS Attacks Police Station Near Mosul IS Attacks Police Station Near Mosul

IS fighters have attacked a police station in a town used as a staging ground for the Mosul offensive, killing at least three policemen, Iraqi officials said. Mahmoud Attia, a police spokesman, told AP that a sleeper cell of three IS fighters attacked the station on Sunday in Hamam al-Alil, about 30 km south of Mosul.

Rudaw, a local television channel whose reporters were inside the station, said at least two suicide attackers entered the facility before detonating their payloads.

A group of about 10 assailants, including four suicide bombers, had tried to infiltrate a Federal Police helicopter base in Al-Areej, a police captain told Reuters.
