Security sources said on Saturday that a top ISIS leader was killed in an air strike launched by Iraqi Air Force in Anbar province.

Leader within Iran Militia in Iraq and Syria (IMIS) in Anbar, Qatari al-Obaidy noted that Abu Mohamed al-Tunisi was killed in the air strike, adding that one of the ISIS leader's assistant was also killed.

Although Prime Minister Haider al-Abadi announced full liberation of Iraqi lands and the end of war against ISIS in December 2017, Iraqi cities are witnessing acts of violence as terrorist group's sleeper cells continue to launch attacks targeting civilians and security forces.
