Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS) jihadist fighters killed at least 30 Iraqi soldiers in a flashpoint area south of Baghdad.

Jihadists from the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS) killed at least 23 Iraqi soldiers and members of allied Shiite militia in a flashpoint area south of Baghdad, army sources said Saturday, according to Agence France-Presse.

ISIS militants firing salvos of mortar rounds began attacking the town of Jurf al-Sakhr late Friday, killing 11 soldiers and 12 members of the Asaib Ahl al-Haq militia, an officer and army medic said.

Another seven soldiers had their throats slit during a subsequent government operation against jihadist fighters in Jurf al-Sakhr, al-Hamya and Latifiya, the sources added.
