Iraqi soldiers struck heavy blow at the ISIL terrorists in the city of Ramadi, Anbar province, killing large numbers of them.
More than 20 members of the so-calle Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIL) Takfiri group were killed during a series of operations carried out by the army on Thursday in Anbar province, a military source told state news agency.
Also, six vehicles of the terrorist group were destroyed during the operations.
The ISIL Takfiri terrorists currently control parts 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.
