Iraqi security forces said in a statement that "two officers and two soldiers" were also killed, when the device was detonated.
In 2017, Iraq announced the defeat of the militant ISIS. But members and sleeper cells continue to operate in various parts of the country, although Iraqi forces continue their operations against the group.
