Iraqi army forces have killed three of the most prominent ISIL Takfiri terrorist commanders in the country's western al-Anbar Province.
The Iraqi Defense Ministry said the ISIL commanders were killed in an air strike carried out by the army in the city of Fallujah.
Further details have not yet been released.
The Iraqi army also conducted an air attack in the area of Saqlawiyah, located north of Fallujah. The attack led to the destruction of some 140 missiles belonging to the militants.
Iraqi soldiers, police units, Kurdish forces, Shia volunteers and Sunni tribesmen have succeeded in driving the ISIL terrorists out of some areas in Iraq.
They recently managed to cleanse ISIL terrorists from most areas of the city of Tikrit, situated northwest of the capital, Baghdad, inflicting heavy losses.
ISIL started its campaign of terror in Iraq in early June 2014. The heavily armed militants took control of the country's northern city of Mosul before sweeping through parts of the country's Sunni Arab heartland.
The Takfiri extremists currently control parts of Syria and Iraq. They have carried out heinous crimes in the two countries, including mass executions and the beheading of people.
