According to the official media wing of the Iraqi security forces, their troops managed to kill dozens of Islamic State terrorists, while also destroying a number of tunnels and hideouts.
The Iraqi security forces said the operation was carried out in cooperation with the Iraqi Air Force, who conducted several strikes on the Islamic State’s positions in the Hamrin Mountains.
In their statement, the Iraqi security forces confirmed the successful operations in the Kanoukh area and Talat Al-Hamrin, pointing out that as many as 25 terrorists were killed, while also destroying nine tunnels and a training camp.
