A statement by Jabbar al-Taie, Commander of Kirkuk Operations Command, said on Sunday December 11 that Iraqi aircraft bombarded an IS hideout in the Altun Kupri area north of the namesake provincial capital Kirkuk, nearly 250 km north of Baghdad, leaving three IS militants killed, Xinhua news agency reported.

In a separate incident, a soldier was killed and another wounded when IS militants attacked an army base in the Kolan area east of Kirkuk city, Maj. Ihsan al-Baiyati from Kirkuk police told Xinhua.

Earlier in the day, two civilians were wounded when IS militants attacked their car in the al-Eith area in Salahudin province in the north of the Iraqi capital Baghdad, a source from the provincial police, told Xinhua on condition of anonymity.
