Iraq: 8 ISIL Terrorists Killed in Kirkuk
The Peshmerga forces thwarted an ISIL attack on al-Hananiya village in al-Riyadh district in Southwestern Kirkuk on Friday night, Peshmerga Major General Westa Rasul said.
Some eight ISIL terrorists were killed and two of their vehicles were destroyed in the operation.
The ISIL Takfiri terrorists currently control shrinking swathes of Syria and Iraq. They have threatened all communities, including Shiites, Sunnis, Kurds, Christians, Ezadi Kurds and others, as they continue their atrocities in Iraq.
Senior Iraqi officials have blamed Saudi Arabia, Qatar, and some Persian Gulf Arab states for the growing terrorism in their country.
The ISIL has links with Saudi intelligence and is believed to be indirectly supported by the Israeli regime.
