At least ten Islamic State (IS) militants were killed during an operation by the Iraqi army on Mount Qarachogh, near Makhmour, south west of Erbil.

Spokesperson for the Iraqi Commander-in-Chief, Yahia Rasool, said in an online statement that the Iraqi troops on the ground were provided aerial support by the US-led Global Coalition fighter jets during the operation.

“Nine caves and a storage for food and medicine were also discovered and destroyed,” Rasool added.
