ISIL Takfiri terrorist group has killed at least 23 Iraqi soldiers and government-allied fighters in Iraq’s restive Anbar province, following the massacre of dozens more in the same province.
In a Sunday attack carried out in the rural district of Jaramshah, north of the provincial capital Ramadi, Daesh militants killed 17 soldiers and six Sunni fighters, the Associated Press reported.
The terrorists reportedly used bombs and mortar shells in their deadly offensive.
Chief of army operations Major-General Qassim al-Dulaimi in Anbar is said to be slightly injured.
In another deadly attack launched on Friday, the terrorists killed up to 50 Iraqi soldiers and allied Shia fighters in two separate ambushes west of Ramadi.
Some Western and regional countries have reportedly been providing ISIL with logistic and financial support.
Earlier in the day, the head of Iraq’s Badr Organization, Hadi al-Amiri, accused some foreign embassies of meddling in Iraq’s internal affairs. The head of the political party stressed that there are some red lines in the country, which no one is authorized to cross.
Violence has plagued the northern and western parts of Iraq ever since Daesh launched its deadly terror campaign in June 2014, and took control of portions of Iraqi territory.
The terrorist group has gained notoriety for its barbarity, heinous atrocities, and sacrilegious acts. Its militants have been accused of committing war crimes in areas they control in Syria, Iraq, and Libya.
