The ISIS terrorist group killed a senior Kurdish commander and five other fighters on Friday in a major attack in Iraq's Kirkuk province.

The ISIS assault on areas south and west of the northern city of Kirkuk began at around midnight, sparking fighting with medium and heavy weapons that was still ongoing Friday morning, a police brigadier general said.

Brigadier General Shirko Rauf and five other members of the Kurdish peshmerga forces were killed in clashes, while 46 more were wounded, the police officer and a doctor said.

The Kirkuk province security committee announced a curfew beginning at 10:00 am (0700 GMT) on Friday, saying it will be in effect until further notice.

Yesterday Kurdish Peshmerga forces repelled a violent ISIS attack in the Aski area located 50 km northwest of Mosul and killed 30 elements of the ISIS group.
