At least 28 ISIL terrorists have been killed across Tikrit, as Iraqi troops continue their sweeping operation across the recently-recaptured city, a military source said.

According to reports, the army troops and volunteer fighters clashed with the terrorists in the areas of Jesar Haded and Baiji, as part of a plan to fully clear the city from the Takfiri dregs.

A senior Iraqi official, speaking on condition of anonymity, said on Thursday that the army troops have been storming the remaining strongholds of the ISIL terrorists in Tikrit.

The source said, "The elements of Salahuddin Operations Command, backed by the police and army elements soldiers in cooperation with the volunteer forces, are continuing their mop-up operations to clear the city of remnants of the ISIL terrorists and defuse the IEDs".

The Iraqi army, backed by Shiite and Sunni volunteer forces, made a final push against the ISIL terrorists in Tikrit, and managed to fully liberate the Northern city from the control of the Takfiri group on March 31.

The hometown of former Iraqi dictator Saddam Hussein was expected to be fully liberated within hours after the army troops and popular fighters inflicted major losses on the ISIL terrorists in the Southern and Western parts of the city and broke the terrorist group's fortified line of defense.

On Monday, Iraqi Prime Minister Haidar Al-Abadi announced that his country's forces are very near to winning back full control over Tikrit, adding that Mosul and Al-Anbar will be the next stop.

"The Iraqi troops are in the final battles for retaking control of Tikrit in Salahuddin province," the Iraqi prime minister said after meeting UN Secretary General Ban Ki-moon in Baghdad on Monday.

Al-Abadi underlined that the Iraqi troops will try to regain control of Mosul and Al-Anbar in the next stage of their operations after Tikrit.
