At least 12 terrorists were killed in heavy fighting between the Iraqi army and ISIL Takfiri group in Baghdad, a military source said.
Iraqi Ministry of Defense announced on Monday that the army troops targeted the positions of the ISIL in the city of Abu Ghraib, West of Baghdad, leaving more than 12 terrorists dead and injured.
Also, two vehicles belonging to the Takfiri group were destroyed during the clashes.
The ISIL Takfiri terrorists currently control a shrinking part 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.
