“At least 100 ISIL members were killed and many more were wounded in unsuccessful attacks of the Takfiri group on the government positions in al-Qayyara,” Saleh al-Jabouri said, adding, “ISIL attacked al-Qayyara from their directions, but were pushed back by the strong defense of the Iraqi army soldiers.”
“The Iraqi forces captured four terrorists, killed seven suicide attackers and destroyed their weapons and ammunition and military vehicles in the battlefield,” he added.
Reports said earlier today that the ISIL terrorist group executed over half a dozen Iraqi citizens in Nineveh province by putting them in iron cages and submerging them in water.
“A sum of 8 Iraqi civilians were arrested in al-Douse district in the center of the city of Mosul on charges of spying for the government and Pishmarga forces and were later submerged in iron cages,” a local source said.
The ISIL terrorists recorded the scenes as they were killing the 8 as they were caught in iron cages.
