At least 50 members of the ISIS (Daesh / ISIL) Takfiri terrorist group have been killed while 40 other arrested in a series of counter-terrorism operations against the extremists across Iraq.

Lieutenant General Abdul Ghani al-Assadi, the commander of Iraq’s counter-terrorism forces, said on Monday that the terrorists were killed during a high-scale military operation in the town of al-Shirqat in northern Salahuddin province, Lebanon's al-Ahed news website reported.

The commander added that the Iraqi forces also repelled a massive attack by ISIS terrorists near the same troubled region.

Meanwhile, Iraq’s National Intelligence Service announced that security forces had detained at least 40 terrorists during a crackdown on militants’ hideouts in north and south of the capital, Baghdad.
