The Iraqi army jets have shelled Islamic State locations, west of Anbar, a security source from the mobilization forces in the province said on Tuesday.
In remarks to Almaalomah website, the source said “the army jets heavily bombarded location where Islamic State members hide in the desert of Hit city, west of Ramadi.”
Information from the intelligence department “enabled the army jets to target these locations, which the militants use to sneak from the desert regions,” the source added. “The militants lost many of these roads due to the tight control on desert areas.”
Thousands of Islamic State militants as well as Iraqi civilians were killed since the government campaign, backed by paramilitary troops and the coalition was launched in October 2016.
