Thirteen members of the Iraqi federal police were killed in an attack led by the Islamic State (IS) group against the checkpoint near Kirkuk (north), on Saturday night to Sunday, according to medical and security sources, writes AFP.

The attack on the dam south of Kirkuk began shortly before midnight and lasted several hours, an Iraqi police officer told AFP.

In this region, jihadist cells regularly conduct attacks on the Iraqi army and police. It is one of the worst IS attacks since the beginning of the year.
