Meanwhile, Iraq’s Interior Ministry said that the country’s security forces killed at least 30 members of the ISIS terrorist group in the provinces of Anbar and Diyala, Sputnik reported on Wednesday.

The report said that 22 ISIS terrorists were killed in an operation in the city of Hadithah in the western province of Anbar.

Eight ISIS militants were killed and two others injured after Iraqi forces destroyed a camp belonging to the militants during an anti-terrorist operation near Baqubah, the provincial capital of the eastern province of Diyala.

Iraqi security forces also managed to capture a communication station belonging to ISIS terrorists in an area between the central cities of Ramadi and Samarra.

The northern and western parts of Iraq have been plagued by violence ever since ISIS terrorists began an offensive through the Iraqi territory in June 2014.

Iraqi army soldiers and fighters from Popular Mobilization Units are seeking to win back militant-held regions in joint operations.

On Tuesday, Iraqi security forces, backed by army units, liberated the Zankourah district in Anbar from ISIS terrorists; Press TV reported.
