An International Coalition airstrike has killed nine ISIS terrorists in Anbar Governorate, western Baghdad, The Baghdad Post reported on Saturday. 

In a press statement, Gen. Qassem al-Mohamady said, "The US-led coalition bombarded an ISIS bastion in Rayhana district, 210 km western Ramadi, killing nine terrorists".

"The strikes also targeted four vehicles in Rawah district, 230 km western Ramadi, and killed all militants in them," Mohamady said, without revealing the number of those killed.

He added the bombardment came as a preparation for imminent strikes by the  international coalition and the Iraqi forces to liberate districts of Rawah, Annah and Qa'im western Anbar. 

ISIS terror group is currently taking civilians in those areas as human shields. 

Since October, 216, the Iraqi army in collaboration with the international coalition have launched an offensive code-named 'We Are Coming, Nineveh' to liberate occupied districts from ISIS.
