Three Iraqi military personnel were killed on Saturday (February 2nd) in al-Haouz in a blast targeting their vehicle, police said.
"An improvised explosive device (IED) targeted a military vehicle, a Hummer, belonging to the Iraqi army's 4th Infantry Brigade, killing two soldiers and one officer," Salaheddine police spokesman Hasan al-Majmaie told Al-Shorfa.
The vehicle was burned in the blast, but local residents managed to put out the fire before security forces arrived on the scene, he said, blaming the attack on al-Qaeda.
