ISIS has released an online statement where it has taken credit for the attack on Turkish soldiers in Bashiqah, Iraq.
Al-Masdar News earlier reported the attack that has so far had no confirmed deaths.
It was suspected ISIS had committed the attack, despite Shi’ite militias vowing to attack the Turkish troops violating Iraq’s sovereignty.
Baghdad has repeatedly called for Turkey to remove its troops from Iraq’s Kurdistan region. Turkey has yet to fully withdraw.
