ERBIL, Kurdistan Region – Four Kurdish fighters within the Hashd al-Shaabi were killed in clashes with ISIS militants in Diyala province on Saturday, an official confirmed.
 
Salar Nisaif, a commander within the mainly Shiite Hashd al-Shaabi told Rudaw that "In the early morning, clashes erupted between us and ISIS militants after we raided the plains of Nada together with Iraqi army forces.”
 
The Nada plains are in Diyala province.
 
According to Nisaif, in the three-hour long confrontation a total of four Hashd al-Shaabi fighters, all Kurds, were killed.
 
Three of them were from Khanaqin and the other from Mandali, he added. Three other Hashd fighters were wounded.
 
The bodies of the Kurds were sent to Khanaqin. "In a prestigious procession, they will be buried," said the Hashd commander. 
 
Twenty ISIS militants were also killed in the fighting, he added.

An estimated 2,000 Shiite Kurds are believed to have been recruited by the Hashd al-Shaabi, mostly from Diyala province, according to a Kurdish official who had spoken to Rudaw previously on the issue, on condition of anonymity.
