Two American soldiers have been killed and five more wounded during an operation in northern Iraq.
The US Central Command (CENTCOM) said in a statement that five other troopers also sustained injuries in the Sunday incident، without identifying the soldiers or providing more details regarding the circumstance of the deadly event. The towns include Tal Afar, about 65 kilometres west of Mosul, where Iraqi troops and militiamen have been gathering ahead of what is expected to be the next major offensive in the campaign against the Islamic State.
