VDO: Iraqi Army Push Back ISIS Terrorist From Garma;Latest Army Advances

At least 20 of ISIL militants were killed in an Iraqi airstrike near border with Syria earlier in the week, according to the Iraqi Defense Ministry.

The raid was initiated upon a tipoff from the pro-government Hashd al-Shaabi and targeted the area of Tel Safouk near border with Syria, the ministry said in a statement.

According to Army Capt. Jabbar Hassan, for his part, Hashd al-Shaabi has reinforced its forces along the Iraqi-Syrian border.

Earlier this month, Iraqi forces expelled ISIL militants from Mosul, which the terrorist group overran along vast swathes of territory in northern and western Iraq in 2014.
