    At least four Iraqi soldiers were killed and five got injured after militants attacked a brigade command in Iraq's western province of Anbar, media reported on Monday, citing military sources.

    MOSCOW (Sputnik) — According to the Turkish Anadolu news agency, the army position 160 kilometers (100 miles) to the west of the Iraqi city of Ramadi was attacked with the machine guns by the Daesh militants.

    Daesh is a terrorist group, outlawed in many countries around the world, including Russia and the United States, and mainly operating in Syria and Iraq.

    The jihadist organization had also claimed responsibility for a number of recent terrorist attacks in the crisis-torn Iraq, such as the Saturday twin attack in Baghdad and the Sunday attack in the city of Najaf that had together claimed lives of about 35 people and injured some 75 more.
