At least 23 Iraqi soldiers and government-allied militiamen were killed Sunday in an attack by ISIS militants in the turbulent Anbar province west of Baghdad, Iraqi military and police officials said, in the second heavy death toll suffered by the Iraqi military and its allies in recent days in the vast Sunni region.The officials said Sunday's attack, which killed 17 soldiers and six Sunni militia fighters, took place in the rural district of Jaramshah, north of Anbar's provincial capital, Ramadi.News of Sunday's attack came two days after up to 50 soldiers were killed by the ISIS in two ambushes elsewhere in Anbar province, much of which is under ISIS control, including Ramadi and the key city of Fallujah.
