Iraqi forces kill 6 Daesh militants in Kirkuk

Iraqi forces on Saturday killed six militants from the Daesh terror group west of Kirkuk in the north of the country, Iraqi security source said.

The source told Petra’s correspondent in Baghdad that the Iraqi army moved against the militats after receiving a tip-off about their activity in the Abbasi area, southwest of Kirkuk.

Iraqi forces have been monitoring Daesh movements in the oil-rich Kirkuk region for weeks and have killed many militants in operations.
