Iraqi Air Strikes Kill 51 ISIL Terrorists in Salahuddin Province

Iraqi air strikes pounded the positions of the ISIL Takfiri group in Salahuddin province, and killed at least 51 terrorists.
The Iraqi warplanes, backed by Jubour tribal forces, launched massive strikes against the hideouts of the terrorists in Northwestern parts of Dhuluiyah town and claimed the lives of 51 Takfiri terrorists.
Also, 12 vehicles belonging to the terrorists were targeted during the strikes.
The crisis in Iraq escalated after the ISIL militants took control of Mosul in a lightning advance on June 10, which was followed by the fall of Tikrit, located 140 kilometers (87 miles) Northwest of the capital, Baghdad.
Soldiers of the Iraqi army and Pishmarga have been engaged in heavy fighting with the militants on different fronts and have so far been able to push them back in several areas.
