(Reuters) – Two U.S. soldiers were killed and a third was injured when two Iraqi soldiers opened fire on U.S. troops during training in the northern city of Mosul on Saturday, Iraqi army sources said.
The incident occurred while U.S. soldiers were training an Iraqi military unit at al-Ghazlani U.S. military camp in southern Mosul, 390 km (240 miles) north of Baghdad, they said.
“According to available information, two American soldiers were killed today during a shooting at a training session inside al-Ghazlani military camp. Two Iraqi soldiers suddenly opened fire at the American soldiers,” an Iraqi military colonel in Mosul, who declined to be named, said.
The U.S. military said in a statement two U.S. service members were killed and one was wounded while conducting operations in northern Iraq, but did not give further details.
