Iraqi Special Forces Kill 14 ISIS Militants In Kirkuk

According to a statement released by  Iraqi Counter-terrorism Forces today, an anti-terrorism operation carried out near the northern city of Kirkuk in support of warplanes of the US-led coalition  has killed 14 members of the ISIS group.

The statement says the operation, just south of Kirkuk, lasted for two days and included Iraqi special forces rappelling from helicopters.

Although Iraq declared victory against ISIS in July 2017, the extremists have since been trying to mount a guerrilla-style insurgency, going into hiding and staging surprise attacks in different parts of the country.
