During the night of 02 December, Islamic State carried out three separate attacks targeting security forces in Naft Khana in Diyala, Yathrib in Salah ad-Din, and north of Karma in Anbar province. At least four Popular Mobilisation Forces (PMF) members were killed in Naft Khana, and up to 50 others injured including a senior ranking officer. Casualties from the other attacks were not reported.

The timing of the attacks in Yathrib and Karma, which were smaller scale than the Naft Khana assault, but which also took place during the hours of darkness, could indicate a degree of communication between IS cells across these provinces, with multiple small-scale attacks achieving a greater impact. Such attacks are likely to continue as PMF units remain deployed in relatively static positions in areas where IS continues to operate.
