Three suicide car bombs driven by foreigners targeted the remote desert border crossing between Iraq and Jordan Saturday killing at least four Iraqi soldiers, Iraqi officials said.The attack was immediately claimed by ISIS on its twitter account, which said the attack was perpetrated by Belgian, French and Senegalese militants and claimed a much higher death toll. The attack came as there was fierce fighting on the other side of Anbar province north of the ISIS-controlled city of Fallujah after an ambush Friday killed an Iraqi general and staff officers.The attack killed Iraqi 1st Division commander Brig. Gen. Hassan Abbas Toufan and three staff officers as well as 10 other soldiers, said Lt. Gen. Mohammed Khalaf al-Dulaimi of the Anbar operations command.
