At least 108 ISIL Takfiri terrorists have been killed in operations conducted by Iraqi security personnel and military aircraft in the troubled western province of Anbar.

On Thursday, Iraqi fighter jets carried out precision strikes against ISIL positions in the town of Rutbah, situated about 428 kilometers (265 miles) west of the capital, Baghdad, killing 13 militants in the process, Arabic-language al-Forat news agency reported.

A commander responsible for orchestrating militant attacks in the area was among the slain extremists.

Commander of the Federal Police Forces Lieutenant General Raed Shaker Jawdat said 12 ISIL Takfiris were killed as Iraqi security forces launched an ambush against the militants in the al-Madhiq region, which lies east of Anbar's provincial capital city of Ramadi. Iraqi forces also destroyed five vehicles belonging to the Takfiris during the operation.

Separately, the commander of Babylon Operations, Major General Riyad Khikani, said at least 10 ISIL Takfiris, among them bombers of Chechen nationality, were killed after Iraqi forces carried out an operation west of Ramadi, situated about 110 kilometers (68 miles) west of Baghdad.

Moreover, Iraqi military aircraft pounded ISIL militants' hideouts in the Hay al-Tamim neighborhood of Ramadi, leaving more than 10 extremists dead and a number of explosives-laden vehicles destroyed.

Nine ISIL militants were killed as Iraqi security personnel made headway toward Albu Issa bridge in the embattled province. Government forces also defused 30 improvised explosive devices in the area.

Iraqi police forces also killed 20 ISIL militants and defused 26 bombs in another Anbar region.

In the town of Karmah, located about 48 kilometers (30 miles) west of Baghdad, three ISIL terrorists were killed as security forces conducted an offensive. A vehicle carrying the Takfiris and four hideouts were also destroyed in the process.

Eighteen ISIL militants were killed and a pickup truck with a mounted machine gun was destroyed during an Iraqi police operation in the Dhira’ Dijlah district of the western province.

Additionally, Iraqi security forces carried out an operation in Ain al-Faras region, killing 13 ISIL extremists.

The northern and western parts of Iraq have been plagued by violence ever since ISIL Takfiri militants began their march through the Iraqi territory in June 2014.

The heavily-armed terrorists took control of Mosul before sweeping through parts of the country’s heartland.
