Kurdish Peshmerga forces have taken control of another village held by ISIL terrorists near the city of Erbil in Iraq after fierce house-to-house battles, sources say.

Iraqi Kurdish Peshmerga forces claimed they liberated the key village of Sultan Abd’Allah, located 80 kilometers from the capital of Iraq's semi-autonomous Kurdish region, Erbil, from ISIL Takfiri militants, sources said Friday.

The Kurdish fighters said three troops died during house-to-house battles.

Sultan Abd’Allah is located on the banks of the Tigris River, linking Erbil to the northern city of Mosul, which is currently under the control of the ISIL militants.

Peshmerga forces were able to recapture two villages south of Erbil on Thursday.

The fighters engaged ISIL terrorists in a push to reclaim the northwestern town of Sinjar where hundreds of women and children from the Izadi Kurdish minority group are being held hostage.

Peshmerga forces have also set up camps for Izadi Kurdish refugees.

The ISIL terrorists control some parts of Syria and Iraq. They are engaged in crimes against humanity in the areas under their control.
