Qaim, IRAQ — Combat jets from the United States-led coalition killed at least 40 Islamic State militants west of Anbar as special operations approach for the recapture of the terrorist group’s last havens in Iraq.

Alghad Press quoted a security source saying that the fighter jets pounded militants’ locations near the “phosphate company” in the town of Qaim, killing at least 40 ISIS members.

Dozens of military vehicles belonging to the militants were destroyed in the raid, according to the source.

Since Islamic State militants took over large areas of Iraq and Syria to establish a self-styled “caliphate” in 2014, Iraqi government forces, backed paramilitary troops and U.S.-led coalition, launched a wide-scale campaign to retake those regions, Iraqi News reported.

So far, the offensives managed to retake Mosul, the group’s former capital, the town of Tal Afar, Kirkuk’s Hawija and Anbar’s Annah. Only Qaim and neighboring Rawa currently remain in IS grip.

Local authorities and human rights agencies believe Islamic State members are holding tens of thousands of civilians in western Anbar as future human shields, having killed hundreds for attempting to escape.

Yesterday America’s Freedom Fighters reported that in Baghdad, IRAQ, several people were killed when a bomb hidden beneath a civilian car exploded south of Baghdad, according to authorities at the capital’s police.

Alsumaria News quoted the source saying that the bomb exploded at al-Maalef when the vehicle was passing by at the area, killing the people on board.

A monthly count by the United Nations Assistance Mission in Iraq (UNAMI), which excludes security members deaths, said 196 civilians were killed, while 381 others were wounded due to violence and armed conflicts during the month of September. The fatalities included 10 foreign nationals. Baghdad was the most affected province with 37 deaths and 157 injuries. Dhi Qar province came in the second place with 82 killed and 93 injured. Anbar came in the third place with 20 killed and 46 injured,  at Iraqi Newsreports.

The Iraqi capital has seen almost daily bombings and armed attacks against security members, paramilitary troops and civilians since the Iraqi government launched a wide-scale campaign to retake Islamic State-occupied areas in 2016.

While most of of the explosions and attacks in Baghdad go without a claim of responsibility, Islamic State has claimed several incidents.

Some security observers believe that even after Islamic State’s main havens across Iraqi provinces are conquered, the group may still constitute a security threat through sleeper cells and lone wolf attacks. The Iraqi government is preparing to drive the group out of its last havens in Anbar: the towns of Rawa and Qaim.
