He added that clashes between the forces and the terrorists resulted in the death of 2 Peshmerga members, pointing out that the attack has been repelled.


The site of the clashes is in one of the disputed territories, which are Kurdish areas defined by Article 140 of Iraqi constitution as being Arabized during the former Iraqi Ba'ath rule in Iraq.


Although Iraq announced military victory over the Islamic State in late 2017, the group continues to carry out insurgency attacks, ambushes, and kidnappings in the country, especially in the disputed territories.
