At least 24 ISIL members were killed Tuesday after Iraqi security forces repelled two separate attacks in Anbar province, security and government sources said.
The Iraqi security forces killed 19 ISIL members south of Fallujah, after “50 ISIL members in 10 armored vehicles attacked al-Ameriyah district, 32 kilometers south of Fallujah,” Mahmoud al-Esawi, council chief of al-Ameriyah district, told, without saying if there were any casualties to the Iraqi side.
The armed groups launched their attack from the ISIL-controlled city of Fallujah, Esawi added.
Meanwhile, Major General Kazem al-Fehdawi, Anbar province’s police chief, said that security forces, backed by tribal fighters, repelled ISIL attack on Ramadi and killed five members in clashes.
Also, a civilian was killed when a bomb that was planted under his car exploded in the western city of Baqubah, the capital of Diyala province, police said.Last Mod: 24 Mart 2015, 14:27
