As many as 14 civilians killed in ISIL attack on Iraqi village

As many as 14 civilians, including women and children, were killed on Saturday after ISIL militants launched an attack on a village in Iraq, Xinhua reported citing local security sources.
Around 20 militants raided the village of Mseihly in the northern province of Salahudin on Saturday morning and clashed with local paramilitary Sunni tribal fighters.
Five militants were reportedly shot dead during the assault.
The militants are thought to have come from the ISIL-held eastern bank of the nearby town Shirgat.
The attack comes as Iraqi government forces continue with a major offensive to drive ISIL from their stronghold in the west side of Mosul and retake the city.
