Bagdhad [Iraq], November 9 (ANI/Xinhua): Four people were killed and three others wounded in an attack by the Islamic State (IS) terrorists in the southwest of Baghdad, the Iraqi military said Monday.

The attack took place late on Sunday night when four IS terrorists attacked a military position manned by a government-backed paramilitary Sunni group known as Sahwa, or Awakening Council force, at a village in the al-Radwaniyah area, the media office of the Joint Operations Command (JOC) said in a statement.

One of the three injured left the hospital after receiving treatment, the statement added, without giving further details.

The security situation in Iraq has been improving since Iraqi security forces fully defeated the IS terrorists across the country late in 2017.

However, IS remnants have since melted in urban areas, deserts and rugged areas, carrying out frequent guerilla attacks against security forces and civilians. (ANI/Xinhua)
