Iraqi military sources said that the country’s army men have repelled an ISIL offensive in the city of Samarra in Salahuddin province, and killed over 50 Takfiri terrorists in their counter-assault.
The Iraqi army troops supported by tribal fighters repelled the ISIL’s massive attacks on Samarra and killed at least 58 Takfiri militants in their counter-attacks, the Command Center of the Iraqi Forces announced on Friday.
The center said that the ISIL was planning to carry out suicide attacks in Samarra city, but were all foiled.
On Wednesday, Iraq’s Hashd al-Shaabi forces thwarted an ISIL attack on al-Sobihat district in the town of Al-Karmah in Anbar province.
The Iraqi forces thwarted the ISIL attack, and killed and injured scores of the terrorists, a security source said.
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 and Syrian 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.
