ERBIL – Iraqi warplanes have killed 36 Islamic State (IS) militants, including six senior leaders in the weekend’s airstrikes, said a military spokesperson on Sunday.
According to a statement released by spokesperson for the Iraqi Security Media Council, Brig. Gen. Yehiya Rasool, the Iraqi F-16 jets have carried out multiple strikes on IS hotbeds in Syria, as quoted by Alghdad Press.
Iraqi PM Haider al-Abadi declared the defeat of the terrorist group in December, last year, but the extremists have lately begun their activities in most liberated territories, specifically on Iraqi-Syrian border areas.
However, Baghdad have launched an operation using its air force to eliminate the remaining militants over the past few days.
