BREAKING: Pro Government Militia KILLS 8… Here’s What We Know


Kirkuk, IRAQ — Eight Islamic State members were killed in confrontations with the pro-government paramilitary troops, southwest of Kirkuk, a security source was quoted saying on Friday.

“Troops of the 27th brigade of al-Hashd al-Shaabi (Popular Mobilization Forces) managed, in the evening, to kill eight IS members inside rest houses of the militant group in al-Hawi region, al-Zab town in Hawija,” the source told AlSumaria News.

Speaking on condition of anonymity, the source added that “troops were on a security mission, when they killed the militants during confrontations with them,” Iraqi News reported.

Yesterday AFF reported that nine Islamic State militants, including a suicide attacker were killed in an operation, west of Kirkuk, the pro-government paramilitary troops announced.

In a statement, the media service of al-Hashd al-Shaabi (Popular Mobilization Forces) said, “an ambush was set, depending on information from the intelligence, leaving nine ISIS members killed in Wadi al-Rahma, north of al-Zab town in Hawija. One of them was a suicide attacker.”

On Wednesday, a security source was quoted saying that Federal Police forces engaged with ISIS elements in Altun Kupri, northwest of the province, leaving three militants dead.

Earlier this week, around 20 ISIS militants were killed as Iraqi forces, backed by PMFs, clashed with ISIS militants at al-Saadiya village in Hawija, news reported quoted sources as saying. 15 others are still trapped inside the village. PMFs media service said on Saturday that troops, assisted by Federal Police troops, killed five members of ISIS and besieged two others during a raid on their hideout in Tuwairiya, Abbasi, northwest of Hawija.

Thousands of ISIS militants as well as Iraqi civilians were killed since the government campaign, backed by paramilitary troops and the coalition, was launched in October 2016 to fight the militant group.

In December, Abadi announced full liberation of Iraqi lands, declaring end of war against ISIS members. However, Islamic State continues to launch sporadic attacks across Iraq against troops. Security reports indicate that the militant group still poses threat against stability in the country.

God Bless.
