7 ISIS terrorists killed during counter-terrorism operation in Kirkuk


An Iraqi counter-terrorism force said on Tuesday that seven ISIS militants were killed during a security operation in the oil-rich province of Kirkuk.

“A Counter-Terrorism Service force, in coordination with the U.S.-led international coalition, carried out a security operation in Daquq area in Kirkuk,” the Iraqi Security Media Cell said in a press statement.

The troops killed seven terrorists and destroyed several hotbeds and tunnels in the operation, the statement added.

Iraq declared the collapse of ISIS territorial influence in November 2017 with the recapture of Rawa, a city on Anbar’s western borders with Syria, which was the group’s last bastion in Iraq.
