US forces kill eight terrorists in Iraq

Baghdad, United States forces in Iraq on Thursday targeted several locations of the Daesh terrorist group, killing eight of its members.

The aim of the operation, which was carried out in coordination with the Iraqi government, was to eliminate Daesh sleeper cells, said US military sources.

Brig. Mohammed al-Bajari, a high-ranking officer in the Iraqi army, told Petra’s reporter in Baghdad that the US aerial bombardment and artillery shelling was done in coordination with the army, and led to the destruction of a number of terrorist sites.
