Four Islamic State militants killed, injured in Diyala aerial bombardment
2018-02-08
Diyala (Iraqinews.com) ‐ Four Islamic State
...formerly ISIS or ISIL, depending on your preference. Before that al-Qaeda in Iraq, as shaped by Abu Musab Zarqawi. They're very devout, committing every atrocity they can find in the Koran and inventing a few more. They fling Allah around with every other sentence, but to hear the pols talk they're not really Moslems....
holy warriors were killed and injured Wednesday as an intensified aerial bombardment targeted the Lion of Islam group’s hotbeds in Baqubah, the capital of Diyala province, a security official was quoted as saying.

Speaking to Basnews website on Wednesday, Awwad al-Rabei, the head of Abu Saida’s security committee, said, "An Arclight airstrike was launched Wednesday on Islamic State strongholds at al-Makhisa village, east of Abu Saida, leaving two IS holy warriors killed and two others injured."

"There are still Islamic State sleeper cells in different parts in Diyala," Rabei said, warning that such cells pose a serious threat to the province’s security and stability.

Earlier this week, a joint force made up of the Iraqi army, police and al-Hashd al-Shaabi (Popular Mobilization Forces) launched a wide-scale military operation, tracking down Islamic State remnants in the eastern part of Diyala.
