Iraqi Forces Kill 108 ISIL Terrorists in Nineveh Province
Iraqi forces have killed over 100 ISIL Takfiri terrorists in the province of Nineveh over the past 48 hours, senior army officials said on Monday.
“Our forces have killed 108 ISIL militants in Nineveh province in the last 2 days,” Nineveh Province Operations Commander Brigadier General Najm al-Jabouri told reporters on Monday.
He noted that many ISIL’s military bases were also destroyed during the Iraqi army’s operations in different parts of Nineveh province .
Earlier today, Commander of the Iraqi Federal Police Raed Shaker Jawdat confirmed that the country’s forces targeted the ISIL Takfiri terrorists’ hideouts in the surrounding areas of Ramadi, killing a number of militants and destroying their vehicles.
“The rocket launching battalion of the 2nd brigade of the federal police destroyed a large number of the vehicles of the ISIL terrorist group near the bridge of al-Sadiqiyah in Eastern Husaybah,” the police commander said.
He further added that several boats loaded with improvised explosive devices were also exploded in the country’s shelling.
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.
