Nineveh ( – Iraqi authorities announced on Monday that six members of the Islamic State militant group were killed Monday in an airstrike in Nineveh province.

In a press release carried by the privately-owned Alsumaria News TV channel, the Iraqi Security Media Cell said that the air raid was launched based on intelligence information to eliminate IS remnants in Nineveh province.

No further details were given about the operation but security forces used to target Islamic State gatherings since the collapse of the terrorist group’s territorial influence in Iraq in November 2017.

Despite the group’s crushing defeat at its main havens across Iraq, Islamic State continues to launch sporadic attacks against troops with security reports warning that the militant group still poses a threat against stability in the country.
