ISIS elements target federal police checkpoint in northern Kirkuk

An "Islamic State of Iraq and Syria" (ISIS) attack targeting a police checkpoint in al-Ton Kobri, an area that lies between Kirkuk and Erbil, killed three federal policemen and wounded one, the Iraqi Ministry of Defence said Tuesday (May 7th).

"ISIS terrorists last night attacked a federal police force in Barda, located along the Erbil-Kirkuk highway," the ministry said in a statement.

Security forces are "pursuing the perpetrators who fled to a mountainous area following the terror attack", it said.
