Iraqi troops destroyed six terrorist hotbeds of ISIS in Kirkuk governorate, a security spokesperson was quoted as saying.

“A force from the federal police started a military campaign from two axes to eliminate cells of ISIS in Kirkuk, managing to destroy six of their terrorist hideouts,” Spokesman for the Iraqi Security Media Council Brig. Gen. Yehia Rasool told Baghdad Today.

“The troops also seized a huge amount of explosives and ammunition, including an explosive belt, an RPG7 missile and a motorbike that was used by the terrorists for moving,” the spokesman added.

Kirkuk officials previously urged reinforcing military troops in the south and west of the province, as the region still has ISIS members who escaped during liberation of Hawija to remote areas.
