At least 11 fighters from Iraq’s Popular Mobilization Units (PMU), better known as Hashd al-Sha’abi, have been killed in an ambush by Daesh terrorists north of the Iraqi capital, according to security sources.

The terrorists used light weapons and the cover of darkness to target the PMU fighters east of Tikrit, the capital of Iraq’s Saladin province, on Saturday.

The deadly ambush came two days after a twin suicide attack claimed by Daesh killed 32 people in Baghdad.

One of the Hashd al-Sha’abi officers, named Abu Ali al-Maliki, told AFP that the attack targeted the PMU’s Brigade 22.
