The Iraqi security media cell reports the killing of four ISIS terrorists in three airstrikes in the Saladin governorate.
Iraqi F-16 fighter jets launched airstrikes on ISIS hideouts in the Saladin Governorate, killing 4 terrorists, the Iraqi media cell reported on Thursday.
"According to accurate intelligence from the Federal Intelligence and Investigation Agency in the Ministry of Interior and in coordination with the task force of the Joint Operations Command, Iraqi F-16 fighters were provided with confirmed information about the terrorist's hideouts," the Iraqi security media cell said.
The aircraft conducted three airstrikes on the hideout in which ISIS terrorists are located: an abandoned home in the Al-Aith area, Saladin Governorate. The strikes led to the killing of four terrorists and the destruction of the hideout.
The Iraqi armed forces thwarted an attack launched by ISIS on a joint military checkpoint in Diyala Governorate, Al Mayadeen's correspondent reported earlier Thursday.
The Popular Mobilization Forces announced Wednesday thwarting another ISIS attack on its forces in the Jurf Al-Nasr area, north of Babylon Governorate. Three of the PMF's members were wounded by an IED explosion placed in their vehicles, it said in a statement following the operation.
