Iraqi police kill 100 ISIL members

Standard

Iraqi troops have killed 100 members of an al-Qaeda-affiliated group in Iraq’s western province of Anbar.On Monday, police retook the occupied areas of the city of Fallujah from members of the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIL) and seized cars and weapons from the militants.Anbar plunged into violence in December 2013 when the army removed an anti-government protest camp in the provincial capital Ramadi. Authorities said the camp was used as “headquarters for the leadership of al-Qaeda.”Iraqi troops, backed by local tribesmen, have since been fighting al-Qaeda-affiliated militants in the region.On April 15, the Fallujah dam was reportedly seized by militants of the ISIL in the restive province.
