The Iraqi army backed by Shia volunteers, Sunni tribes and Kurdish Peshmerga forces is tightening the noose on ISIL militants in several regions across the country.

Kurdish forces have already made their way into Sinjar in Nineveh Province in the northwestern part of the country, lifting the months-long siege on the town.

The liberation of the town opened a road for hundreds of Izadi Kurds trapped by ISIL militants on the Mount Sinjar area to leave.

Masrour Barzani, the head of the Iraqi Kurdish region's National Security Council, said 100 ISIL militants were killed in the fighting. Many more also pulled back into the city of Mosul.

Sinjar had been besieged since August when ISIL stormed the town in northern Iraq.

Peshmerga troops have also recaptured areas close to Syria, namely the border town of Rabia’a, which lies on the Syrian-Iraqi border.

The Kurdish fighters regained control of the Tal Afar Mountain in Nineveh Province from the ISIL militants on Friday and are now marching toward Tal Afar Airport.

They have also tightened their control over the entrance and exit points to and from the city of Fallujah in the western Anbar Province. The city remains under ISIL control.

Meanwhile, ISIL militants have fled the southern belt of the city of Tikrit in Salahuddin Province.

The ISIL terrorists control some parts of Syria and Iraq. They are engaged in crimes against humanity in the areas under their control. ISIL militants have terrorized and killed people of all communities, including Shias, Sunnis, Kurds, and Christians.
