Over 40 ISIL Terrorists Killed by Pishmarga Forces in Iraq’s Sinjar
The Iraqi Kurdish Pishmarga Forces repelled the ISIL terrorists’ offensives in Sinjar frontline and killed at least 40 fighters, Kurdish military sources confirmed.
Pishmarga Commander at the Sinjar frontline Lieutenant Zamdar Raza Zebari said on Saturday that the ISIL attacked Pishmarga forces from several directions in Sinjar.
“The militants attacked the Pishmarga’s positions from a number of neighborhoods, but fortunately our forces were quick to respond to the attacks and killed or wounded tens of the ISIL terrorists,” Zebari said.
Confirmed numbers are as yet unavailable, but Zebari believes than 40 terrorists were killed, with many more wounded.
Earlier this month, Pishmarga forces repelled the ISIL terrorists’ attacks and killed at least 15 of them in the Sinjar frontline near the district of Snunie, in Nineveh.
“The ISIL launched an attack on our Sinjar frontline, close to the Snunie district, but we immediately responded to the attack and drove all the terrorists out,” the source said.
“The ISIL left 15 of their militants killed in the battlefront,” the Pishmarga officer revealed.
