Kirkuk (IraqiNews.com) Iraqi security forces killed on Thursday six Islamic State members in a raid in Kirkuk province, north of the country, the Joint Operations Command said in a statement.

Alsumaria News quoted the statement saying that a raid in Wadi al-Shai, Daqouq, south of the province, backed by international coalition aviation, left six “terrorists” killed, and destroyed hideouts and tunnels belonging to Islamic State extremists.

Iraq declared late 2017 the recapture of all territories occupied by Islamic State extremists three years earlier, but security authorities continues to hunt for remnant cells and struggle against occasional attacks by those vestiges.
