Peshmerga shoot dead six ISIS suicide bombers west of Kirkuk

ERBIL, Kurdistan Region- A major suicide attack by Islamic State (ISIS) militants on Peshmerga defense lines south of Kirkuk was foiled Saturday morning, said the frontline commander.
 
“The militants were gunned down before they could detonate themselves,” commander Kamal Kirkuki told Rudaw.
 
Six ISIS suicide bombers attacked the Peshmerga base at around 3:30 am, whose bodies still lie there in the open field, said Kirkuki.
 
“The bodies of the suicide bombers were blown to pieces after they were shot,” he added.
 
“If the Peshmerga had not killed the militants the attack would have caused serious casualties,” he said.
 
The frontline south and west of Kirkuk has experienced major confrontations between ISIS and Kurdish forces in the last two years. But the Peshmerga are well-prepared for such surprise attacks, said Kirkuki.
 
He claimed that at least 6,000 ISIS militants have been killed on this front alone.
