ISIL downed two Iraqi warplanes in Anbar province in the past 24 hours, sources said.

“Daesh militants downed an Iraqi forces helicopter Friday evening and another jet Saturday morning in al-Karma area,” an Iraqi army captain who preferred not to divulge his name told The Anadolu Agency.

The source did not specify the number of crew members on board the planes or their fate.

Al-Karma area is witnessing ongoing clashes between Iraqi security forces, backed by the Hashid al-Shabi Shiite militia, and Daesh.  

Daesh (the Arabic acronym for ISIL) has been attempting to seize control of Ramadi, the capital city of Anbar province.
