IRAQ-  34 ISIS terrorists, most of whom were wearing suicide belts, were killed and three booby-trapped vehicles were destroyed in addition to other vehicles with guns installed on them in a major anti-terrorism offensive today.

In addition, 70 bombs were defused. Stashes of weapons and explosives as well as boats used by the militants to cross the [Euphrates] river, were destroyed, The War Media Cell (WMC) which is the Iraqi Troops media reported.

The operations were carried out by units of the Jazeera Operations Command and al-Hashd al-Ashaeri (tribal mobilization forces) backed by the airforce and the international coalition, the statement added. The operation was launched at depth of 20 miles in the desert from three axis, Iraq News reports.

The three axes, according to WMC, were “north of Qadisiya lake toward Rawa city, south of Euphrates River toward Rihana and Annah cities and another axis toward Makhazin Haditha and Valley of Houran.”

Anbar’s western towns of Annah, Qaim and Rawa have been held by the extremist group since 2014, when it emerged to proclaim a self-styled Islamic Caliphate.

Fighter jets from the Iraqi army and the international coalition have also regularly pounded ISIS locations in the province. The Iraqi government is expected to aim at those strongholds once the Mosul battle is concluded.

Mohamed Mostafa at Iraqi News reports that the Iraqi Joint Operations Command said Tuesday its forces took over 89.5 percent of territories in western Mosul, adding it had killed more than 16000 militants since the launch of Mosul operations in October.

Some generals were quoted saying they predict the city to be free before the end of this month.

Iraqi government forces are eyeing the ancient, densely structured and populated Old City, the place where Islamic State’s supreme leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi declared the establishment of an “Islamic Caliphate” in 2014. Troops besieged the area for weeks from the south, but turned to the northwestern axis to invade the city earlier this month. IS fighters are believed to have been holding hundreds of thousands at that area as human shields.

Earlier America’s Freedom Fighters reported that Iraqi forces killed at least 173 ISIS jihadists last week, during the offensive aimed at liberation of the northern Iraqi city of Mosul.

Iraqi forces killed at least 173 jihadists from the Islamic State (Daesh) terrorist group on Monday local media reported, citing the head of federal police.

Iraq’s anti-terrorism units on Monday have stormed Al-Oraibi and Al-Rifa’i neighborhoods where heavy clashes are still taking place. The country’s “Quick Reaction Force” as well as the Iraqi Army’s 9th Division also entered Al-Iqtisadiyeen neighborhood and the southern and northern parts of the area, considered to be the most dangerous ISIS stronghold.

“We have destroyed 40 booby-trapped cars and killed 173 from ISIS, among them one leader,” the head of federal police said.

Sources also said that 60 ISIS militants have left with their families from neighborhood amid the ensuing commotion and clashes.

Hours after storming the neighborhoods, the Iraqi forces evacuated more than 4,000 civilians despite heavy clashes between them and ISIS.

Only a couple of ISIS-controlled neighborhoods are left after 210 days since the start of operation to liberate the northern Iraq city of Mosul.

Last week, AFF reported that ISIS militants killed at least 64 civilians, including women and children, while trying to flee battles with Iraqi security forces in western Mosul to the eastern side.

The Iraqi Observatory for Human Rights said the civilians were trying to cross the Tigris River, which divides the city, to the eastern side which Iraqi forces took over in January, but were shot dead by ISIS snipers.

The ISIS terrorists also took civilian prisoners according some of the survivors off the attack.

They said more than 40 families were trying to cross the river, but at least 64 dead bodies washed ashore.

The observatory quoted a security source in Sallamiya that the corpses bore signs of gunshots, and that he was predicting more dead bodies to resurface, Iraqi News reports.

Earlier on Sunday, BasNews quoted Ahmed al-Obaidi, a Federal Police Captain, saying that ISIS militants had shot dead 16 Iraqi women who were trying to flee al-Rifaie district in western Mosul, adding that 30 other families in the same district.

The Iraqi government and United Nations counts put the number of Iraqis displaced since the launch of the offensive to retake Mosul from IS in October 2016 at at least 600,000. Nineveh municipal officials say there are 600,000 others who fled to relatives or rented residences and therefore had not been registered.

Daesh (ISIS) has faced accusations by the U.N., Iraqi government and aid agencies of using civilians as human shields. Concerns for civilian lives had been a major reason behind occasional slowdowns of security operations and unfortunately some have been killed in operations by Iraqi forces and the allied U.S.-led coalition.

The militants have now been eradicated from all but a handful of areas in the western half of Mosul including the Old City, where Islamic State is expected to make its last stand, taking advantage of narrow streets and its dense population.

Brigadier General Yahya Rasoul said the area controlled by ISIS was no more than 9 percent of west Mosul.

Iraqi commanders predict Mosul could be retaken before the end of this month.

It looks like Mosul will be cleansed of these ISIS savages soon, however, the damage, destruction and terror that they have put these innocent people will last for eternity.

God Bless. SourceAFF
