Iraqi warplanes kill 3 ISIS terrorists, destroy a guesthouse in Kirkuk

Iraqi warplanes targeted on Saturday a gathering of ISIS terrorist group in Kirkuk province, leaving three of them dead.


Spokesman for the Iraqi Security Media Council Brig. Gen. Yehia Rasool said that “the Iraqi Air Force killed three ISIS terrorists and destroyed one of their guesthouses near A’isha camp in eastern Anjana on the road linking Baghdad to Kirkuk in Diyala.”


Two ISIS armored vehicles were also destroyed in the airstrike.

In January 2015, Iraqi forces announced liberation of Diyala province from ISIS who proclaimed an “Islamic Caliphate” in Iraq and Syria in 2014.


The province has seen months of fighting between Iraqi troops and ISIS militants especially in the Jalawla and Saadiyah areas in the province’s north and areas near the town of Muqdadiyah.


Despite the group’s crushing defeat at its main havens across Iraq, ISIS continues to launch sporadic attacks against troops with security reports warning that the militant group still poses a threat against stability in the country.
