ERBIL, Kurdistan Region- At least six Iraqi soldiers were wounded in an assault carried out by the Islamic State (ISIS) militants in western Makhmour, a Kurdish Peshmerga official told Rudaw on Wednesday.

“On Wednesday afternoon ISIS launched an assault on the Iraqi army in Nasr village, northern Makhmour front,” Sirwan Barzani, the Peshmerga commander of the Gwer-Makhmour region, told Rudaw.

“ISIS used a car bomb for the attack and wounded six Iraqi soldiers in the process,” Barzani explained.

The Peshmerga commander said fierce fighting between ISIS and Iraqi army lasted an hour-and-a-half.

Last week the Iraqi army announced that the anticipated offensive to liberate al-Nasr village from ISIS had been postponed.

Bashdar Aziz, a deputy commander in the Iraqi Army, said a multitude of problems were undermining their ability to effectively launch an offensive to retake al-Nasr. Despite the fact they are being provided with air support by the US-led coalition and artillery fire support from a US Marine base on the Makhmour front.
