12 Notorious ISIL Commanders Killed in Al-Khalediya Island
According to al-Soumeriya news website, among the dead is the ISIL’s commander responsible for loading the suicide cars with explosives, Abu Talha al-Tunisi.
“During the operations carried out by the Iraqi security and popular forces in al-Khalediya Island, important documents about the ISIL were discovered in a secret room in a building which will accelerate the terrorist groups’ annihilation,” a source said.
Late last month, the commander of Iraq’s Popular Mobilization Forces, Hadi al-Ameri, announced that the number of the ISIL terrorists killed in the recent battle of al-Khalediya has exceeded 1,200.
“Around 1,200 to 1,500 terrorists have been killed in fierce clashes with Iraq’s joint military forces in al-Khalediya battle,” al-Ameri said.
He noted many ISIL terrorists have also been arrested, including some runaway notorious prisoners of Abu Ghraib prison.
“Some of the captured commanders were foreigners, including women who had military uniform on,” al-Ameri added.
On August 20, a senior military commander announced that Iraq’s joint military forces had completely seized back the strategic al-Khalediya Island located to the East of al-Ramadi in Anbar province.
