Kirkuk, IRAQ – Iraqi policemen, backed by pro-government forces, killed six Islamic State (ISIS) militants in Hawija district in Kirkuk, a security source was quoted as saying.

Speaking to Alghad Press, the source said, “A joint force from the Iraqi police and the Tribal Mobilization Forces stormed a secret tunnel used by IS militants between al-Fara and Hosayneya villages in al-Zab area in Hawija.”

“Fierce clashes erupted between the two sides, leaving six ISIS insurgents killed,” the source pointed out. He noted the operation comes as part of Iraq’s efforts to track down ISIS cells nationwide, Iraqi News reports.

Meanwhile, Iraqi Military Intelligence announced on Wednesday arresting two terrorists and destroying five tunnels used by Islamic State (ISIS) militants in Iraq, a move which comes as part of security efforts to completely eliminate terrorism in the country.

In a statement, a copy of which was obtained by Baghdad Today, the Military Intelligence said that troops of its 14th and 6th brigades carried out an operation to hunt for IS militants in Baghdad, Anbar and Nineveh.

“The troops managed to arrest two terrorists in Saqlawiyah and Mansour districts in Anbar and Baghdad provinces,” the statement read.

The two are wanted on terror charges pursuant to article 1/4 of the counter-terrorism law, added the statement.

Meanwhile, the Military Intelligence said troops of its 20th brigade destroyed five tunnels in southern Mosul that were used by IS militants for moving and hiding.

The Islamic State group appeared on the international scene in 2014 when it seized large swathes of territory in Iraq and Syria, declaring the establishment of an Islamic “caliphate” from Mosul city.

Later on, the group has become notorious for its brutality, including mass killings, abductions and beheadings, prompting the U.S. to lead an international coalition to destroy it.

Iraq declared victory over Islamic State in December with the help of a US-led alliance, having retaken all the territory captured by the extremists in 2014 and 2015.

In October, Iraqi Prime Minister Haider al-Abadi declared that Iraqi troops recaptured Hawija, a main town held by Islamic State in the country.

The town had fallen to IS in June 2014, when the militant group seized control of much of northern and western Iraq and proclaimed the creation of a self-styled “caliphate”.

There, Islamic State’s reign forced thousands to flee to refugee camps, while hundreds had been executed by the group for attempting to escape the area or contacting security forces.

Despite the group’s defeat at its main havens across Iraqi province ISIS continues to launch sporadic attacks across Iraq against troops. Security reports indicate that the militant group still poses a threat against stability in the country.

These people are insane.

GOD BLESS! 

TOGETHER WE WILL MAKE AMERICA GREAT AGAIN!
