2 US Troops Killed During Combat Operations In Iraq

Iraq: two US soldiers killed, five wounded in internal incident

The United States military said that two American soldiers were killed during "combat operations" in northern Iraq on Sunday but that initial findings indicate the deaths were not caused by "enemy contact". Two coalition service members died in non-combat related incidents in Iraq, one in January and another in February near Ramadi.

Col. Ryan Dillon, a spokesman for the US -led coalition in Iraq and Syria, called the Islamic State claim "false" and said the casualties on Sunday were "not because of enemy fire".

"The entire counter-ISIS coalition sends our deepest condolences to these heroes' families, friends and teammates", Townsend said in a statement.
