Senior ISIS terrorist killed in Peshmerga, US-led coalition operation


Three ISIS terrorists including a senior figure have been killed in joint operations launched by the Peshmerga forces and the US-led International Coalition against ISIS bastions in Makhmour, 70 km southwest of Erbil.


Serwan Barzani, the commander of the Peshmerga forces, identified the senior terrorist as Abu Obeidah, who is in charge of finances and logistical support of the terror group. 


On Thursday, Iraqi PM Haidar Abadi said his country's security and military forces would eliminate all terrorist cells.


A statement from Abadi's office said the premier ordered a new operation against ISIS remnants in central Iraq after civilians have been recently abducted and killed by the terrorist group.
