According to Joint Special Operations Command, Iraqi air force jets killed at least 50 ISIS (Daesh in Arabic) in the north-central Kirkuk province.

Iraqi air force jets killed at least 50 ISIS in the north-central Kirkuk province, including fighters hailing from the Caucuses, the Joint Special Operations Command said Monday, Sputnik reported.

"Iraqi F-16 aircraft…directed air strikes resulting in the destruction of four ISIS terrorist bases, four bomb-making and anti-aircraft weapons making labs, and killed over 50 terrorists, including from the Caucasus planning suicide attacks in Hawija," the command said in a statement on its website.

Kirkuk province has repeatedly been at the epicenter of fierce clashes between ISIS militants and joint Iraqi forces since the terrorist group captured vast parts of Iraq in June 2014.
