A suicide car bomb went off at the entrance of the facility in Taji at around 0600 local time (0300 GMT), allowing at least six attackers wearing explosive vests to enter the facility where they clashed with security forces, the sources said.
A spokesman for Baghdad Operations Command said three of the facility's gas storages were set alight amid the violence.
