ISIS attacks kill 40 Iraqi soldiers, 4 Jordanian guardsmen

Three ISIS suicide bombers Saturday rammed three bomb cars into the Trebill post, the only border crossing between Iraq and Jordan, killing at least 40 Iraqi soldiers and 4 Jordanian border guards. The Islamic State claimed responsibility for the attack, revealing that it was executed by Belgian, French and Senegalese bombers who drove in from the western Iraqi province of Anbar. The communiqué “identified” them by their jihadi aliases as Abu Abdullah al-Beljiki, Abu Bakr al-Firansi and Abu Jafer al-Senegali.
