Three IS men blow themselves up in IraqBAGHDAD: Three suspected Islamic State group suicide bombers blew themselves up on Sunday in northern Iraq, the army said, a day after the Jihadists’ "caliphate" was wiped out in neighbouring Syria.Army spokesman Yahya Rassoul said the incident took place in a region near the Syrian border, where Jihadist sleeper cells are believed to be present. He said the suspects died as troops surrounded them but there were no casualties among government forces.Local officials said the suspects were killed as they were trying to attack troops in the village of Qayrawan, south of the mountainous region of Sinjar which borders Syria.Fighters of the US-backed Syrian Democratic Forces on Saturday pronounced the death of the nearly five-year-old IS "caliphate" which once stretched across a vast swathe of Syria and Iraq. Their victory was hailed as a major landmark in the battle against the Jihadists but there have also been numerous calls for "vigilance" with many saying the fight is far from over.
