An ISIS leader and his brother have been killed by Iraqi forces in Sumer neighborhood in Nineveh Mosul's city, a security source said on Tuesday. 

Upon receiving intelligence information, the security forces encircled the neighborhood and killed these terrorists. 

This comes as Iraqi security forces have started implementing a new plan hunt down ISIS suspects in Mosul as many of them are still on the loose in the city.

The plan included that the security forces, backed by tribal mobilization forces, will encircle a neighborhood in the city every week.

Earlier, Iraqi security forces had fully recaptured Nineveh governorate which was considered to be ISIS' main stronghold in Iraq and is currently sweeping Iraq to oust ISIS remnants from them.
