The officers say six attackers struck the base on Monday morning. Five detonated suicide vests once inside the center and the situation is now under control, the officers added.

The officers spoke on condition of anonymity in line with regulations.

No group immediately claimed responsibility for the attack but it resembles similar strikes carried out by the Islamic State. The attack comes as Iraqi forces are closing in on the last of the Islamic State held neighborhoods in western Mosul nearly three years after the extremists overran almost a third of Iraq in 2014.
