Iraq’s army troops, backed by volunteer forces, have killed more than 40 ISIL militants during a mop-up operation against the terror group near the capital.

The Iraqi Defense Ministry said in a statement that the forces succeeded in purging a district south of Baghdad of the Takfiri militants.

The country’s armed forces, who have been battling the ISIL for nearly six months now, inflicted heavy losses on the terrorists, capturing a huge amount of ammunition from them and destroying their vehicles.

The new advances come as the Iraqi government forces have also engaged the Takfiri militants in other parts of the violence-hit country, with reports saying that they have killed scores of militants near the cities of Tikrit and Baiji.

The US-led coalition, meanwhile, has been conducting airstrikes on ISIL positions across Iraq, but the air raids have so far failed to dislodge the terrorists.

The Iraqi troops have pledged to make more gains in the coming weeks.

The ISIL militants have seized large swathes of land in Iraq and Syria, terrorizing all communities, including Shias, Sunnis, Kurds and Christians and Izadi Kurds in the areas they are controlling.

UN Assistant Secretary General for Human Rights Ivan Simonovic has recently warned that Izadi Kurds in Iraq are facing what may amount to an “attempted genocide” at the hands of the ISIL Takfiris.
