SULAIMANI (ESTA) — Iraqi forces killed a “terrorist” suicide bomber in north of Baghdad on Tuesday, the military said.

In a statement, Baghdad Operations Command said the security forces killed a “terrorist” wearing an explosive belt in Tarmiyah district after following and monitoring his movement.

The military’s disposal team also defused the explosive belt, it added.

On Monday, the intelligence units also killed two Islamic State (ISIS) leaders, Ammar al-Issawi and Abu Younis al-Anzi, in Anbar province.

Iraq’s Federal Intelligence and Investigation Agency said Issawi was killed in clashes with its units in Anbar province.

Anzi was killed in the desert area in west of Iraq, it added.

A military spokesman also said on Monday that the intelligence forces killed ISIS leader Abu Al-Bara during an operation in Wadi al-Qadgh and Jalabat in Anbar province.

In 2017 Baghdad announced victory over Islamic State (ISIS), and attacks in Iraqi cities have since become much rarer, although troops continue to fight ISIS sleeper cells in mountainous and desert areas.

The militants still mount deadly operations, mostly at night and in remote areas.
