Anbar ( More than thirty bodies of Islamic State members were recovered from Euphrates River, west of Anbar, a security source from the province was quoted saying on Thursday.

Speaking to Almaalomah website, the source said, “security troops, along with residents of Qaim town, managed to recover more than thirty bodies of Islamic State members, who were executed and thrown in Euphrates River, following conflicts in Hegeen region in Syria, located 40 kilometers away from Qaim.”

Troops and the residents, according to the source, “recovered the bodies fearing pollution of the river after bad odours came out of the bodies.”

The bodies “were shot in the heads and chests,” he added.

On Wednesday, Qutri al-Obeidi, a leader with the mobilization forces in Anbar, said Hegeen saw the biggest mass executions among Islamic State after the leaders killed around 90 members and threw their bodies in Euphrates river, as they were reluctant about the defense battles against Syrian army, which carries out operations to liberate regions near the borders.

Iraqi warplanes launched, last month, a new wave of air raids against outposts of the Islamic State group in Syria.

In April, Abadi denied intentions to intervene within Syrian affairs, saying airstrikes against Islamic State will continue.

Iraq had previously announced launching airstrikes against IS locations in Syria. This came after Abadi said security troops will follow IS militants in the whole region, not only in Iraq.

  1. This is great news!
    IS pigs killing their own soldiers, what more could you ask for?
    Maybe these IS pigs need to shoot some of their officers and also speed up the process.
    I am sure there are a lot of IS pigs who will run and hide.
    You scarred IS pigs need to shoot you officers, before they shoot you!

    Now all you IS pigs hurry up and start shooting each other.

  2. This is a very positive happening but they should also kill their backers who have landed them in mess.
