Islamic State (IS) militants have assaulted the Bashiq military camp in north east of Mosul where Turkish military advisors are training Iraqi Sunni forces.

On Wednesday December 16th, heavy clashes took place between IS insurgents and Sunni National Mobilization Forces (Hashd al-Watani) in Bashiq. Turkish troops, present at the area to protect Turkish military advisors, took part in the fighting to repel the jihadists.

BasNews has learned that four Turkish soldiers were wounded in the clash, and they have been transfered back to Turkey for medical treatment.

Former Nineveh Governor Atheel al-Nujaifi, who commands the Hashd al-Watani, explained that the IS offensive lasted three hours in which rockets and artilleries were fired to their camp.
