In Diyala, another Iraqi soldier was injured during an armed attack by ISIS members.

According to a security source, the assailants targeted an army security point on the outskirts of the Bani Saad district, approximately 20 km southwest of Baquba.

In response, army personnel engaged the attackers, prompting them to retreat.
