Seventeen members of the Takfiri Daesh (ISIS) terrorist group have been killed in an operation by the Iraqi air force in the country’s beleaguered western province of Anbar.

A security source, requesting not to be named, said the Daesh terrorists were killed as Iraqi military aircraft launched precision strikes against a number of militant hideouts northeast of the city of Khan al-Baghdadi, situated about 180 kilometers (110 miles) northwest of the capital, Baghdad, on Saturday, Arabic-language al-Sumaria satellite television network reported.

The development came only two days after tens of Daesh militants were killed when Iraqi Sukhoi fighter jets carried out attacks against terrorist positions in Albu Dhiyab district, which lies north of Anbar’s recently-liberated capital city of Ramadi.
