KABUL: (Middle East Press) At least 32 members of Iraqi police and their allied forces were shot dead by the ISIL Takfiri militants in the western part of the Arab country.
A security source, who spoke on condition of anonymity, confirmed the killings on Saturday, saying the victims had been taken captive in an area near the town of Baghdadi in the western province of Anbar last week, media reports said.
The 32 people are said to have been killed in a village close to the Ain al-Asad airbase, which reportedly houses hundreds of US Marines.
According to reports the bodies have been left in the area with the ISIL terrorists preventing their families from burying them.
The development comes as the terrorists purportedly hit the western town with shells, killing five civilians and injuring six others on Saturday.
