ISIL bombers blamed for attacks on military base near Tikrit and in Haditha as battle for control of Ramadi continues.

Two suicide attacks blamed on the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIL) group have killed dozens of government troops in Iraq.

At least 13 Iraqi soldiers died in Sunday's attack on police training at the Spiecher military base near the city of Tikrit, while an attack in Haditha killed 18 people.

Another 22 were wounded in the attacks by suicide bombers on the base, a former US military facility north of Baghdad, where a large group of police forces from Nineveh, a northern province, were undergoing training.

Two bombers detonated their vehicle-borne explosives at the western gate while three others blew themselves up after entering the section of the base where Iraqi police are being trained.

ISIL claimed responsibility for the blasts in a statement distributed by supporters online, adding that "trainers from the rejectionist army" were targeted.

Speicher is located in Salahuddin, which was one of the provinces conquered by ISIL when it swept across much of Iraq's Sunni Arab heartland in June 2014.

ISIL fighters have launched a number of attacks since losing control of the city of Ramadi in the western province of Anbar a week ago.
