“The leadership of Salahuddin and popular regiments of volunteer forces managed to cleanse the city of Tikrit from ISIL terrorist gangs,” a security source told Iraq’s NINA news agency on Saturday.

Tikrit was one of the two main cities held by the allied militants of ISIL and members of the former Ba’th party headed by executed dictator Saddam Hussein.
