Iraqi Choppers Kill Dozens of ISIL Terrorists in Tikrit


Iraqi helicopters fired several rockets at the hideouts of the ISIL Takfiri group in Salahuddin province, leaving dozens of terrorists dead.

Iraq’s airborne forces bombarded the positions of the Takfiri group in Albo-Jawari area, Southern Tikrit, and claimed the lives of at least 30 Takfiri terrorists.

The crisis in Iraq escalated after the ISIL militants took control of Mosul in a lightning advance on June 10, which was followed by the fall of Tikrit, located 140 kilometers (87 miles) Northwest of the capital, Baghdad.

Soldiers of the Iraqi army and Pishmarga have been engaged in heavy fighting with the militants on different fronts and have so far been able to push them back in several areas.
