Iraq: Vehicle hit by roadside bomb in Dibis district (Kirkuk province) on April 3

Iraq Alerte de sécurité

Roadside bomb detonates near military vehicle traveling through Dibis district (Kirkuk province) on April 3, killing three soldiers; similar attacks possible over the near term

TIMEFRAME expected from 3/4/2020, 12h00 until 17/4/2020, 11h59 (Asia/Baghdad). COUNTRY/REGION Kirkuk province

Event

A roadside bomb detonated on a road near the town of Sergaran in the Dibis district of Kirkuk province on Friday, April 3, killing three Iraqi soldiers and wounding two others. Officials have accused Islamic State (IS) militants of carrying out the attack. A heightened security presence is expected in the area over the coming hours and days.

Context

Although Iraqi Prime Minister Haider Al-Abadi claimed victory over the Islamic State (IS) in December 2017, the group retains a degree of freedom of movement in parts of the country, particularly in western and northern Iraq. IS militants continue to carry out attacks, notably against security forces. High-profile attacks often prompt equally significant security responses, including enhanced checkpoint operations and more proactive operations, with resulting effects on transit.

Advice

Individuals in Kirkuk province are advised to 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.
