Baghdad (IraqiNews.com) –
Sixteen (Alleged Islamic State Members) were killed Monday in an airstrike by the U.S.-led international coalition on a terrorist hotbed in Nineveh province, federal police said.
In a press release carried by Alsumaria News TV channel, the Security Media Cell said that 16 (Alleged Islamic State Members) were killed inside a tunnel that was targeted by warplanes of the U.S.-led international coalition in al Kosb valley in Nineveh.
“The military operation was carried out based on intelligence information,” the statement read, without giving further details.
The Islamic State group appeared on the international scene in 2014 when it seized large swathes of territory in Iraq and Syria, declaring the establishment of an Islamic “caliphate” from Mosul city.
Later on, the group has become notorious for its brutality, including mass killings, abductions and beheadings, prompting the U.S. to lead an international coalition to destroy it.
