The Iraqi Army launched a ground offensive in Salahuddin province on Sunday, and killed several ISIL terrorists.

The army soldiers staged a successful operation in Awja area, eastern Tikrit, and claimed the lives of fourteen Takfiri terrorists including a senior commander.
The crisis in Iraq escalated after the ISIL militants took control of Mosul 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.
