The Iraqi military sources said the country’s security forces stormed the ISIL Takfiri terrorists’ positions and killed at least 8 insurgents near the city of Samarra.
“The Federal Police forces foiled the ISIL attack on the West of Samarra, killing over eight fighters,” Samarra Operations Command said on Monday.
The ISIL Takfiri terrorists currently control shrinking swathes of Syria and Iraq. They have threatened all communities, including Shiites, Sunnis, Kurds, Christians, Ezadi Kurds and others, as they continue their atrocities in Iraq.
Senior Iraqi officials have blamed Saudi Arabia, Qatar, and some Persian Gulf Arab states for the growing terrorism in their country.
The ISIL has links with Saudi intelligence and is believed to be indirectly supported by the Israeli regime.
