Iraqi special forces seized weapons, documents, passports and cash in national and foreign currencies.
Iraqi Special Forces, supported by international coalition air strikes, eliminated 16 IG fighters in the north of the country.
“The fighters encountered the extremist fighters in their caches during an operation that began on Thursday and ended on Friday. The security forces killed several of the militants, while others were killed by coalition air strikes while trying to escape.
Iraqi special forces also seized weapons, documents, passports and cash in national and foreign currencies.
The deal took place against the backdrop of increased insurgent attacks on military and civilian targets in the province of Sunnah, previously controlled by the ISG.
“Security in Iraq has been improving since Iraqi forces completely defeated the ISG throughout the country in late 2017. However, insurgents have since hid in cities, desert and mountainous regions and carried out guerrilla attacks,” it said.
