11 dead after suspected ISIS attacks in western Iraq

Anbar is a western province largely controlled by ISIS, or the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria, the Sunni Muslim extremist group that has used brutal tactics such as mass kidnappings, beheadings and other abuses against civilians and armed foes to capture vast swaths of territory in Iraq and Syria in the past few years.

Most of those killed and wounded in Tuesday’s attacks were Iraqi security force and local Awakening Council members, the security officials said.
