At least 60 members of ISIS terrorist group have reportedly been killed in Iraq’s western Anbar Province.

Iraq’s al-Sumaria news website quoted Major General Qassim al-Mohamadi, the commander of al-Jazeera Operations, as saying on Sunday that the Iraqi forces had managed to foil an attempted attack by Daesh elements on the city of Hit in Anbar, killing 40 Daesh members in the counter-strike.

The Baghdad-based War Media Cell said that the other 20 ISIS extremists were killed in an airstrike conducted by the Iraqi air force.

Amin Shekhani, a spokesman for a unit of the Iraqi army, said that nine Daesh-linked boats were also destroyed in the south of Nineveh Province.

The Takfiris used the vessels to transport foodstuff and guns between five villages around the Tigris River, Shekhani said, adding that the boats and their occupants were targeted by the Iraqi army in the river. He did not specify how many people were on board the boats and whether they died or were merely injured.

Elsewhere in the northeastern city of Ramadi, which is Anbar’s provincial capital, rocket attacks by the Iraqi military left a number of terrorists dead and destroyed three of their cars, Press TV reported.
