Iraq’s Hezbollah Brigades said at least 40 ISIL Takfiri terrorists were killed in an operation in the area of Baiji refinery in Salahuddin Province.
Iraq’s Hezbollah Brigades said in a statement that all the self-proclaimed administrative leaders of the ISIL terrorist group have fled the area of Baiji refinery, located near the key Northern city of Baiji in Salahuddin Province.
The statement further noted, however, that there are still some militants in the area.
At least 40 ISIL terrorists were killed during the operation, according to the statement.
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.
