A Daesh (ISIS) suicide bomber killed two Iraqi army generals in an attack targeting troops west of Baghdad, the Associated Press reported Thursday.
Iraqi officials told the AP the militant drove his vehicle into advancing troops north of the provincial capital of Ramadi on Thursday and detonated the explosives. There were other casualties but the Iraqi military didn't specify the number.
A military statement named the two generals as Maj. Gen. Abdul-Rahman Abu-Regheef, deputy chief of operations in Anbar, and Brig. Gen. Sefeen Abdul-Maguid, commander of the 10th Army Division.
The Iraqi government has continued an offensive against Daesh in the Anbar province but has suffered significant casualties this month.
