Baghdad (IraqiNews.com) –
Seven Islamic State militants were killed Saturday in an airstrike that was launched by the U.S.-led international coalition warplanes in the oil-rich province of Kirkuk.
According to Al Ekhbariya TV channel, the airstrike was launched using accurate intelligence reports to target hotbeds of the terrorist Islamic State group in Hawija district in Kirkuk.
Thousands of IS militants as well as Iraqi civilians were killed since a government campaign, backed by paramilitary troops and a U.S.-led international coalition, was launched in October 2016 to fight the militant group, which declared a self-styled “caliphate” from Mosul in June 2014.
In December 2017, former Iraqi prime minister Haidar al-Abadi announced full liberation of Iraqi lands, declaring end of war against IS members.
