AL-KUWAIT, February 2. /TASS/. The fighters of the extremist group Islamist State (IS) had killed two servicemen and a police officer in Iraq, pan-arab TV channel Al-Arabiya reported.
According to Al-Arabiya, extremists have beheaded officers in the same territory, but an exact location has not been established yet. The IS fighters have published the photographs of the killings in the Internet. At the moment, an inquiry into the circumstances of death of the Iraqis and the examination of authenticity of materials are being held. IS, operating mainly in Syria and Iraq, has taken the responsibility for the this. After 24 hours of raids on the north of the country more than 80 terrorists have been eliminated.
Since August the military forces of the US-led coalition have carried out targeted attacks against the IS positions in Iraq. Several western countries, along with Saudi Arabia, United Arab Emirates, Jordan and Bahrein have taken part in the targeted attacks. However, coalition forces put a lot of effort in order to restrain the pressure of extremists occupying more new territories.
Earlier the US Defense Secreatry Chuck Hagel confirmed the possibility to send the US noncombat troops to Iraq in order to fight against IS. He claimed that on Friday in the interview to CNN.
Hagel finds it appropriate to look at different options including sending the US noncombat troops to Iraq that will be collecting intelligence data without direct participation in military actions.
"I would say, though, we're not there yet. Whether we get there or not, I don't know," Hagel claimed, reiterating his position on the issue.
