SULAIMANI (ESTA) — Iraqi warplanes destroyed an Islamic State (ISIS) cave and tunnel in Tuz Khurmatu, the military said on Wednesday.

In a statement, the security media cell said Iraq’s F-16 fighter jets carried out three air strikes against ISIS positions in Tuz Khurmatu, south of Kirkuk.

The strikes “results in the destruction of a cave and a tunnel of ISIS terrorists”, it added.

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.
