Report: ISIS Kills Nearly 300 Soldiers at Iraqi Army Base

Islamic State jihadists have claimed responsibility for overwhelming an Iraqi army base near Baghdad and killing nearly 300 soldiers in the attack, CNN reported.  

According to a September 25 report, two unidentified Iraqi security officials told CNN that 113 Iraqi troops were executed in the attack on the Sejar military base, located east of insurgent-controlled Fallujah near Baghdad. 

Another 78 Iraqi soldiers were missing and nearly 300 were stranded, according to the officials.  

Islamic State (also known as ISIS and ISIL) “claimed that nearly 300 Iraqi troops were killed in the onslaught. It also reported destroying 65 Iraqi military vehicles, including 41 Humvees, and seizing 37 others,” CNN reported.  

The U.S. has been leading an airstrike campaign in Iraq and most recently in Syria against IS and other extremists.
