Iraqi army troops attacked a hideout of the ISIL terrorist group in Western Mosul, killing over two dozen terrorists.
The Iraqi army launched mortar attacks on an ISIL hideout in a cave in Jebkeh village in Ba’aj town West of Mosul, the Arabic-language al-Mayadeen news network reported.
It noted that the ISIL’s hideout was fully destroyed and a sum of 30 terrorists were killed.
Iraq’s Prime Minister Haider al-Abadi has declared the end of military operations against the ISIL group in the Arab country.
ISIL began a terror campaign in Iraq in 2014, overrunning vast swathes in lightning attacks. Iraqi forces then launched operations to eliminate ISIL and retake lost territory.
