Iraqi armed forces and allied Popular Mobilization fighter jets launched aerial attacks against terrorist positions in the Makhoul Mountains, killing 54 militants.
According to OSINT statements, a launching pad used by Daesh extremists to lob mortar rounds at the area was also destroyed during the operation.
Iraqi security forces mounted separate ground operations north of Anbar’s provincial capital city of Ramadi, killing at least 40 Daesh Takfiris, and bringing the total number of militants killed to close to 100.
Five explosive-laden vehicles, which Daesh members had planned to use against Iraqi army troopers in Albu Dhiyab and Albu Faraj areas, were also destroyed during the offensives.
The northern and western parts of Iraq have been plagued by gruesome violence ever since Daesh terrorists began their campaign of terror in the country in June 2014.
