Three Iraqi soldiers were killed and two others, including an officer, were wounded on Thursday (October 18th) in a blast in the neighbourhood of al-Wihda, eastern Fallujah, the Iraqi army said.

"A roadside improvised explosive device exploded, destroying an armoured vehicle carrying a military patrol of one officer and four soldiers," Lt. Col. Nejim al-Dulaimi, Iraqi army spokesperson in Anbar, told Al-Shorfa. "The attack also caused material damages to civilian cars parked nearby."

"[The attack] carries al-Qaeda's clear fingerprints," al-Dulaimi added.
