    At least four members of Iraq's security forces were killed in the city of Tarmiyah, a part of the Saladin Governorate in the country, Reuters reported, citing a security official.

    No terrorist group has reportedly claimed responsibility for the attack yet.

    Earlier local media reported that six people were killed and 12 more injured following several explosions in the Iraqi city of Kirkuk.

    The situation in Iraq has been highly unstable for several years due to activities of the Daesh* terror group, which seized huge terrorists in the country in 2014. Despite the fact that the occupied were retaken by the Iraqi government troops, the jihadists are staging regular attacks on the country's troops and civilians.

    In December 2017, the Iraqi authorities declared the end of the country's fight against Daesh after the Iraqi troops re-established complete control over its border with Syria. In February, the Kirkuk province governor told Sputnik about so-called Daesh "sleeper cells" in the area.
