Two ISIS members killed in US-led Coalition airstrike, south of Kirkuk


Two ISIS militants were killed on Tuesday as the international coalition carried out an airstrike, south of Kirkuk, security sources were quoted saying.

The air raid, by the US-led coalition warplanes, targeted a gathering of militants in al-Rashad district, south of Kirkuk, the sources said in remarks.

Other ISIS members escaped after the airstrike, the sources said.

Despite declaring victory against ISIS in late 2017, some sleeper cells are still active in Iraq, carrying out sporadic attacks in the liberated regions.
