A senior ISIS leader was killed on Tuesday during a security campaign
carried out in Baghdad, the Interior Ministry said.
In a statement, the ministry’s Security Media Center said the Samara Operations Command managed to kill a terrorist during a security operation, northwestern the Dhuluiya airport, north of Baghdad.
The troops, according to the statement, found three bombs, explosive materials and a gun with the slain terrorist.
Iraqi troops, backed by the international coalition, led by the US, declared victory over ISIS in December 2017, which occupied most of the Iraqi territories between 2014-2015.
