(MENAFN) According to the Iraqi military, on Monday, Feb. 22, U.S.-led coalition airstrikes on an IS hiding place in the Iraqi northern province of Kirkuk left a number of seven fighters of the Islamic State (IS) group dead.
The media office of the Joint Operations Command (JOC) stated in a report that according to intelligence reports, the international coalition aircraft carried out eight airstrikes on an IS site in a rough area called Wadi al-Shay in the southern part of Kirkuk.
The JOC report stated that an Iraqi army force was dispatched to the site and discovered dead bodies of seven fighters, as well as two explosive belts, ammunition, and arms caches.
The mountains and great rocky sites in the north of Iraq’s capital Baghdad have seen extreme activities of the IS fighters in the last months, in spite of constant military operations to catch them.
