9 June 2016 19:25



The Iraqi Hezbollah sources released footage of 5 American helicopters landing in areas controlled by the ISIL in al-Makhoul mountains in Salahuddin province.

The footage released by al-Etejah news channel showed 5 US helicopters which landed in the ISIL-controlled areas in al-Mashak village behind al-Makhoul mountains.

Hezbollah’s information center said that the helicopters landed in the region on April 4 after which the ISIL launched a large offensive against the Iraqi forces deployed in al-Makhoul mountains but the attack was foiled by the army.

Al-Etejah had on the same date reported that unknown helicopters had landed in the region. The Iraqi Hezbollah later revealed that the helicopters belonged to the US army.

In a relevant development in the region last Sunday, the Iraqi army and Hezbollah resistance forces repelled an ISIL attack on their military positions in al-Makhoul mountains, killing over two dozen terrorists.

A sum of 30 ISIL terrorists were killed while the army pushed them back from Al-Makhoul mountainous region located at a crossroad that links the three Iraqi provinces of Salahuddin, Anbar and Diyala.

Tens of ISIL terrorists had tried to attack the Iraqi Hezbollah’s military positions with heavy artillery.

Al-Makhoul mountains overlook the bordering areas of Iraq’s Salahuddin province where the Iraqi Hezbollah resistance forces are closely monitoring the terrorists’ movements.
