Salahuddin ( Iraqi security forces killed ten Islamic State militants and destroyed their hideouts in Salahuddin province, security media reported on Sunday.

The spokesperson of the Security Media Center, Yahya Rasoul, said in a statement that army aviation from the Salahuddin Operations forces killed ten Islamic State militants, destroyed two havens and three underground tunnels near Kanous village, in the city of Shirqat. He added that four motorbikes belonging to the militants were also destroyed in relevant operations at Diyala province.

Iraq declared victory over Islamic State extremists late 2017, ending a three-year war to reclaim territories occupied by the group, but forces continue to hunt for extremists vestiges in desert areas and struggle against occasional attacks launched by the group.
