Iraqi security forces fired mortar shells at positions of the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIL) terrorists in al-Karmah city in Anbar province on Tuesday.
Thirteen ISIL terrorists were killed in the mortar attack in al-Harariat district in al-Karmah city, 53km East of Ramadi city, a security source said, adding that two of the Takfiri militants’ vehicles were also destroyed.
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.
