Kurdistan Region’s Peshmerga General Command has confirmed the killing of at least 130 Islamic State (IS) militants while trying to escape from Tel Afar to Syria.

“After being defeated in Tel Afar and Ayaziya [districts in west of Mosul], the remaining Daesh insurgents attempted to open a path into the Syrian territories; but Kurdistan’s Peshmerga forces readily ambushed the fleeing militants,” reads a statement by Peshmerga General Command.

Following a 72-hours-long military confrontation, at least 130 IS militants were killed and their corpses were left behind on the battlefield, according to the statement.
