At least 300 members of the Takfiri ISIS group have reportedly been killed in an airstrike by the Iraqi Air Force targeting the positions of the terrorist group in the western province of al-Anbar.

According to Al-Alam News Network, “hundreds of ISIS elements have been killed in an extensive air raid by the Iraqi army aviation against the largest ISIS shelters between al-Romana area and Bagoz district (350 km west of Ramadi),” noting that,  “the militants were coming from Syria to support the terrorists in Anbar”.

The statement added that, “preliminary estimates indicated the number of dead to be more than 300 terrorists, in addition to destroying more than 40 vehicles and armored vehicles, as well as the destruction of ISIS training camps in the regions of Anah and Rawah west of the province,” considering such operations as “the largest of its kind in the Iraqi army aviation history.”

It is noteworthy that the Iraqi army aviation and the international coalition implement daily sorties to collect information about the movements and the headquarters of ISIS.

Faisal al-Esawi, a leader of the Albu Esa tribe in the Amiriyat al-Falluja district near Ramadi, also said that as many as 400 Takfiri militants were killed in the Iraqi air raids on the regions of Anah and Rawah.

Since last week, the Iraqi army, backed by Popular Mobilization Forces, has been conducting operations southwest of the city of Samarra in an effort to retake Anbar’s provincial capital from ISIS extremists.
