At least 17 militants of the Islamic State group (ISIS) were killed in an airstrike southwest of Kirkuk on Thursday evening, an Iraqi security official said.

Coalition airpower destroyed military bases in areas south of Kirkuk, from where ISIS frequently launches attacks against Peshmerga positions inside the city.

The unidentified security official, quoted by Iraqi official media, said three bases where ISIS maintained “substantial military resources” were completely destroyed, including storage houses for ammunition and a number of vehicles.

Also south of Kirkuk, Kurdish Peshmerga forces launched an attack earlier this month and recaptured 13 villages from the militants, in an effort to diminish ISIS shelling capabilities targeting Kurdish positions.
