 At least four policemen were killed and three others were injured in a suicide bomb attack Tuesday in Iraq's western Anbar province, Iraqi security sources said.

An alleged ISIL militant detonated his suicide vest at a mosque in al-Baghdadi district that left four policemen dead and three others wounded, town police chief Col. Farouq al-Jughaifi said.

Also, ISIL militants attacked a police station in Ramadi, the capital of the restive Anbar province. No casualties were reported in the incident, Brigadier-General Hamid Shendud said.

Iraq has been gripped with a security vacuum since June 2014, when ISIL stormed the northern Iraqi province Mosul and declared what it called a caliphate in Iraq and Syria.

The Iraqi army, along with Kurdish Peshmerga forces, armed tribesmen and the U.S.-led international coalition, is staging a fight back against the ISIL in Iraq and Syria.
