The top war commander of the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIL), Sheet Al-Samarrai who is called by the terrorist group as its war minister, was killed by Iraq’s security forces on Monday.
Al-Samarrai was killed along with 8 other senior ISIL members in an Iraqi air force raid in Nineveh province on Monday afternoon.
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.
