At least one Iraqi security personnel was killed and two wounded in an ISIS mortar attack that hit Diyala province on Friday night.

A security source said in a statement that the extremist group's militants have attacked a federal police checkpoint in the area of Hashimiyat of Habhab town, western Diyala.

The ISIS attack came one day after a deadly explosion which occurred in a marketplace in Iraq's Babil city, where 39 people were wounded.

The Iraqi security forces, meanwhile, managed to capture six ISIS insurgents in different areas in Anbar province.
