Seven Iraqi servicemen were killed and four more were injured in the Tamim district of Mosul during a car-bomb attack and clashes between the government forces and the Daesh terrorists, according to media reports.

A total of seven Iraqi servicemen were killed and four more were injured in the northern country’s city of Mosul during the operation to drive the militants of the Islamic State (ISIL or Daesh) jihadist group from it, media reported Monday.

According to the Turkish Anadolu news agency, seven servicemen were killed and four more were injured on Sunday in the Tamim district of Mosul during a car-bomb attack and clashes between the government forces and the terrorists.

A total number of Daesh casualties is yet unknown, the media outlet added. A government-led operation aimed at retaking Mosul from the Daesh group, outlawed in Russia and the United States among other nations, has been underway since mid-October with air support of the US-led international coalition.
