Iraqi Army Kills over 160 ISIL Terrorists in Anbar Province in First Day
The Iraqi army and volunteer forces killed tens of Takfiri terrorists in daylong clashes in Anbar province.
“Over 160 ISIL militants were killed in the Iraqi army’s operations in the city of Ramadi on Thursday,” the Iraqi defense ministry announced in a statement on Friday, in reference to militants of the so-called ‘Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant’ takfiri group.
Earlier today, the Iraqi defense ministry announced that its fighter jets launched massive air raids on ISIL positions in the nearby areas of Ramadi which resulted in the killing of tens of militants.
“The Iraqi airstrikes against hideouts of the ISIL militants in the surrounding areas of Hasiba and the outskirts of al-Khalediya City and Ramadi, killed and wounded a large number of the terrorists, and destroyed a large store of their booby-trapped vehicles,” the ministry said.
ISIL takfiri terrorists currently control shrinking swathes of Syria and Iraq. They have threatened all communities as they continue their atrocities across the two countries.
Senior Iraqi officials have blamed Saudi Arabia, Qatar, and some Gulf states for the growing terrorism in their country.
ISIL has links with Saudi intelligence and is believed to be indirectly supported by the Zionist regime.
