SULAIMANI (ESTA) — The state-run Iraqi News Agency (INA) said the armed forces of Iraq have killed a number of the Islamic State (ISIS) jihadist group in Anbar province on Friday.

At least four ISIS militants were killed amid an operation in the Anbar desert, INA reported on Friday, citing The Deputy Commander of Joint Operations, General Qais Al-Muhammadawi.

ISIS seized control of swathes of Iraqi territory in 2014. While the group has been declared territorially defeated in 2017, it still poses a serious security threat to the country which is capable of carrying out hit-and-run attacks and abductions of locals.
