The Iraqi army killed over a dozen militants of the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant, including an ISIL governor, in the Northern parts of the country on Saturday.

The governor of Mosul was killed along with scores of other militants.

This is the third time that a ISIL governor is being killed in Mosul.

Earlier this week, the Iraqi defense minister said that his country's forces will take the city of Mosul back from the ISIL without assistance of foreign forces.

"All the battles to the city of Mosul will be carried out by Iraqi forces exclusively; in planning, timing and execution," the Iraqi minister, Khalid al-Obiedi, told reporters at a joint press conference with his Turkish counterpart Ismet Yilmaz in Baghdad.

"Iraq will not ask for assistance of any other forces for the battles against ISIL militants," Obiedi said.

The ISIL terrorists launched their offensive by seizing the North's main city, Mosul, in June 2014 and have swept through the Tigris river valley, North of Baghdad. They have boasted of massacring hundreds of troops and civilians, including women and children, captured in their advance.

The terrorists have been joined by other factions, including former members of ousted dictator Saddam Hussein's Baath Party.
