Eight Islamic State (IS) militants, including a suicide attacker, were killed in a face-off with paramilitary forces in southern Kirkuk, a military spokesman was quoted as saying.

Speaking to Alghad Press news website, Ali al-Husseini, a spokesman for al-Hashd al-Shaabi (Popular Mobilization Forces) northern axis, said “During a military operation to hunt for Islamic State militants in Kirkuk, paramilitary troops of al-Hashd al-Shaabi found a hideout that was used by the militant group at al-Aziziyah village in southern Kirkuk.”

“The troops immediately stormed the hideout and killed eight Islamic State militants, including a suicide bomber,” Husseini said, adding that one of al-Hashd al-Shaabi fighters was killed in the clashes as well.

Earlier this month, a Saudi daily paper warned of a plot by the Islamic State group to storm Kirkuk and use it as a starting point for regaining control of Mosul.
