 A suicide bombing killed two Kurdish peshmerga forces and injured three others in northern Iraq on Sunday. 

A ISIL bomber blew himself up inside a peshmerga forces center east of Mosul, Kurdish officer Shirzad Zakholi told Anadolu Agency. 

He said the bombing came as ISIL terrorists launched attacks against peshmerga forces in east and south-east Mosul. 

“But these attacks were repelled by Kurdish forces,” he said. 

Backed by U.S.-led warplanes, Iraqi forces are currently preparing to launch an anticipated offensive to recapture Mosul, Iraq’s second largest city, from ISIL, which overran the city in 2014.
