Gunmen on Thursday (December 27th) killed the 32-year-old wife of an al-Sahwa member and wounded her baby in an attack on their house north of Baghdad, Iraqi police said.

Lt. Col. Fadhel Abbas al-Mashhadani, deputy Tarmiya police chief, told Al-Shorfa the gunmen attacked al-Sahwa member's house in the area of al-Shatt.

"Police are investigating the attack, which carries terrorist indications," he said, adding that it may be "part of a series of operations targeting al-Sahwa forces that have fought against al-Qaeda".
