Iraqi forces kill 15 Daesh bombers near border with Syria

The Iraqi Interior Ministry says government forces have launched a counter-terrorism operation to hunt down Daesh Takfiri terrorists near the country’s border with Syria, killing more than a dozen extremists in the process.

The ministry’s spokesman, Brigadier General Saad Maan, said in a statement on Tuesday that members of the Federal Police force had carried out a surprise attack, and killed fifteen Daesh bombers during the operation, Arabic-language al-Forat news agency reported.

The slain Takfiris had medium weapons and explosive belts in their possession, and were under constant surveillance over the past few days.

On December 9, Iraq’s Prime Minister Haider al-Abadi declared the end of military operations against the Daesh terrorist group in the Arab country.
