Unidentified gunmen killed senior Iraqi intelligence officer, Nebras Abu Ali, in an area east of Iraq’s Baghdad, TV news channel Al-Arabiya reported.
The assassination came after the Iraqi Intelligence Service had foiled multiple operations that were planned against civilians.
No official comment has been made by the country’s authorities.
Earlier in March an intelligence officer was killed in an area west of the Iraqi capital.
The assassinations coincide with the continuation of military operations against Deash, despite its defeat years ago.
