Unidentified gunmen killed at least 11 people and wounded 8 others including soldiers in an attack on an Iraqi army post in western Baghdad, police sources and medics said.
The assailants in four vehicles attacked the post in the city's Al-Radhwaniya district using grenades and automatic weapons, the sources said. The army and police forces have started an operation in search of the attackers, police sources said on Monday.
Meanwhile, security sources and medics told AFP that the attack was carried out by the Daesh terror group.
Social media users, using the hashtag #Al-Radhwaniya, condemned the cowardly attack, praying for the martyrs and hoping for quick recovery for those injured.
