A roadside bomb attack killed eight Popular Mobilization Forces (PMF) fighters and wounded seven others in Salah Al-Din province on Thursday, February 14. According to local security officials, two roadside bombs struck a convoy of PMF fighters as they were traveling to conduct a search campaign in the Al-Jazira area near Samarra. No group immediately claimed responsibility for the attack. Similar militant attacks targeting PMF fighters are possible in the area over the near term.
Individuals in Salah Al-Din province are advised to report suspicious objects and behavior to the police, remain vigilant for militant activity, and adhere to any instructions issued by the local authorities and their home governments.
The security environment in Iraq remains complex. Although travel is possible in some areas with proper security protocols in place, other areas should be considered strictly off limits. Professional security advice and support should be sought prior to all travel.
