The Iraqi army backed by volunteer forces repelled the Takfiri terrorists’ massive offensives in multiple fronts on a strategic region in the city of Ramadi on Friday.
The army units thwarted the ISIL’s large-scale attacks on Khalidiya region in the Eastern parts of Ramadi, FNA dispatches said.
Tens of ISIL terrorists were killed and dozens more were injured in fierce clashes with the Iraqi forces.
Earlier today, the Iraqi interior ministry confirmed that at least 17 terrorists of the ISIL Takfiri group were killed in the Iraqi airstrike in Salahuddin province and dozens more were injured.
“The Iraqi air force carried out an airstrike against the ISIL militants in the area of al-Lain,” the ministry said in a statement adding, “The bombing resulted in killing of at least 17 ISIL terrorists and the burning of several vehicles.
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.
