Iraqi security forces kill senior Daesh leader in Salahuddin

 

 

Iraqi security forces have killed a high-ranking commander of the Daesh Takfiri terrorist group in the country’s north-central province of Salahuddin as government troops, backed by allied fighters from the Popular Mobilization Units, are seeking to purge the war-ravaged Arab country of remnants of the extremist outfit.

Colonel Mohammed al-Bazi, a provincial police source, said members of the Federal Police force and pro-government fighters – more commonly known by the Arabic name Hashd al-Sha’abi – engaged in a fierce exchange of gunfire with Daesh Takfiris in a rural area west of Shirqat town, located some 280 kilometers north of the capital Baghdad, early on Saturday.

Bazi added that Iraqi soldiers and their allies managed to fatally shoot Salih Karkaz, wanted by Iraqi forces as the leader of the so-called Nahavand Battalion.

Meanwhile, at least 26 Daesh terrorists have been arrested during a counter-terrorism operation near Badush village, situated 24 kilometers west of Mosul.
