Iraq's Air Force, in a close cooperation with its intelligence forces in Salah al-Din province, staged an attack on a hideout belonging to the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIL) terrorist group, killing five commanders of the group in the region and wounding some others.

Security source told Alforat news agency that the Iraqi army air force bombarded a building in Sadirat neighborhood in the Northern part of Tikrit, the capital of Salah al-Din, killing five terrorists of the ISIL.

The crisis in Iraq escalated after the ISIL militants took control of Mosul in a lightning advance on June 10, which was followed by the fall of Tikrit, located 140 kilometers (87 miles) Northwest of the capital, Baghdad.

Soldiers of the Iraqi army and Pishmarga have been engaged in heavy fighting with the militants on different fronts and have so far been able to push them back in several areas.
