Yesterday AFF reported that Iraqi troops, along with fighter jets, have killed and arrested more than twenty ISIS members and leaders west of Mosul, a security source was quoted saying.


“Security troops arrested, today, 17 IS members in al-Rayhaniya village and seize the weapons in their possession in Badush, west of Mosul,” the source told Baghdad Today website.

Moreover, the source added that “eight members including three leaders were killed in an airstrike against al-Atshana mountain, in the wake of their attack against a checkpoint in Badush and fleeing to mountainous areas.”


On Thursday the security media center announced repelling an ISIS attack against a checkpoint in Badush.

Security sources were quoted on Thursday saying that two soldiers were killed, while three others were injured as gunmen, who are believed to belong to Islamic State, attacked the checkpoint, Iraqi News reports.

AFF reported that two children were killed as a landmine exploded just west of Anbar, a security source from the province was quoted saying.

“Two children were killed as a landmine went off in Kubeisa city, west of Anbar,” the source told Alghad Press.

The landmine, according to the source, was old one and it exploded as the children were near to it. “Security troops started combing the region in search for other landmines,” Iraqi News reports.

Yesterday AFF reported that Iraqi troops killed on Sunday 30 Islamic State (ISIS) militants while hiding inside a cave in western Mosul, the Turkish Anadolu Agency quoted an army official as saying.

“Upon accurate intelligence reports, Iraqi troops fired 27 missiles from a Stryker armored vehicle against a cave in Al-Ba’aj district, 150 km (93 miles) west of Mosul, leaving the cave completely destroyed,” Major Abbas Abdel Azim from the 20th brigade of the Iraqi army said.

“All 30 ISIS militants who were inside the cave were killed in the bombardment,” Abdel Azim pointed out, revealing that the cave is believed to be used as an explosives depot as a huge explosion was heard following the missile attack.

A total of 115 Iraqi civilians, excluding policemen, were killed and another 250 injured in acts of terrorism, violence and armed conflict in Iraq in January 2018, according to casualty figures recorded by the United Nations Assistance Mission for Iraq (UNAMI).

Baghdad was the worst affected governorate, with 323 civilian casualties (90 killed, 233 injured). Diyala followed, with 8 killed and 15 injured; and Nineveh, with 13 killed and 7 injured.

Abadi announced in December full liberation of Iraqi lands, declaring end of war against IS members. However, Islamic State continues to launch sporadic attacks across Iraq against troops. Security reports indicate that the militant group still poses threat against stability in the country.

Thousands of IS militants as well as Iraqi civilians were killed since the government campaign, backed by paramilitary troops and the coalition, was launched in October 2016 to fight the militant group.
