Iraqi popular forces (Hashd al-Shaabi) announced that an ISIL (Daesh / ISIS) mufti has been killed in an airstrike in al-Shirqat region, Northern Salahuddin province.

"The Mufti who was a Saudi national was killed in the Iraqi army's airstrike along with three other ISIL members," Jabbar al-Amouri, a commander of Iraqi popular forces, said on Friday.

According to him, the popular forces also could repel the ISIL terrorists' attack on the army positions near Makhoul mountain in Salahuddin province, killing a number of them and blowing up their vehicle.

Earlier this week, Iraq's F16 fighter jets had struck the military positions and gathering centers of the ISIL terrorist group in the city of Shirqat in Salahuddin province, inflicting heavy losses on them.

Several ISIL terrorists, including four Iraqi bomb experts, three Saudis and two Palestinians were killed in the Iraqi airstrikes in al-Shirqat.

Meantime, the Iraqi warplanes pounded the ISIL military base, control and communication centers in Kirkuk province, killing ISIL's communications commander and his bodyguards as well as destroying all their weapons, FNA reported.
