24 ISIS terrorists were killed in an artillery attacks conducted by Iraqi security forces in the city of Heet (Hit) in the western province of Anbar.

Major General Qassem al-Mohamadi, the commander of al-Jazeera operations, said the terrorists were killed as Iraqi artillery shells hit Daesh concentration centers in the district of al-Doulab in Heet (Hit), 70 km west of Ramadi City, the Arabic-language al-Sumaria news website reported Friday.

The Iraqi military recaptured the central city of Ramadi, Anbar’s provincial capital, last December.

He added that six other terrorists were also wounded in the artillery attacks that left the militants’ positions and weapons destroyed.

The report added that the Iraqi forces are carrying on with their military operations to liberate the ISIS-held areas on the outskirts of Heet (Hit) from the control of the terrorists.The security forces liberated Heet (Hit) in April after weeks of fighting.

The development comes as the security forces are engaged in a wide-scale military operation in the western province to liberate the city of Fallujah from the militants.

Gruesome violence has plagued the northern and western parts of Iraq ever since Daesh launched an offensive in the country in June 2014, and took control of portions of the Iraqi territory.

The militants have been committing vicious crimes against all ethnic and religious communities in Iraq, including Shias, Sunnis, Kurds, Christians and others.

The Iraqi army and volunteer forces are involved in operations to win back militant-held areas, Press TV reported.
