A roadside bomb blast targeted Iraqi troops in the Jurfa al-Nasr region of Babil province leaving several people dead and wounded.

Iran PressMiddle East: A roadside bomb targeted a car belonging to the Iraqi army's Operation Al-Jazirah command in the Jurfa al-Nasr region of Babil province, the Iraqi Saberin News channel reported Thursday morning.

An Iraqi soldier was killed and several others were injured in the terrorist blast, Iraqi sources said.

Despite the defeat of the ISIS terrorist group in Iraq, members of this terrorist group are still present in different parts of the country and carry out terrorist acts in a scattered manner.

In 2014, the ISIS terrorist group, with the financial and military support of the United States and its Western and Arab allies, including Saudi Arabia, invaded Iraq, occupying large parts of the northern and western parts of the country and committing countless crimes. Iraq subsequently called on Iran to help Baghdad fight these terrorists.

On November 17, 2017, Iraqi forces, with the advisory assistance of the Islamic Republic of Iran, succeeded in liberating the city of Rawa in Anbar province western Iraq, the last ISIS base in Iraq. With the liberation of this city, ISIS was destroyed. 219
