MOSCOW (Sputnik) – A total of seven Iraqi servicemen were killed and four more were injured in the northern country's city of Mosul during the operation to drive the militants of the Islamic State (ISIL or Daesh) jihadist group from it, media reported Monday.

According to the Turkish Anadolu news agency, seven servicemen were killed and four more were injured on Sunday in the Tamim district of Mosul during a car-bomb attack and clashes between the government forces and the terrorists.
