Coalition air raids kill three IS militants N. Iraq

IRBIL, July 7 (KUNA) -- Global coalition air raids have killed three so-called Islamic State militants in northern Iraq, the Iraqi military said on Sunday.
The aerial offensive in an area in Kirkuk also managed to completely destroy the militants' hideout, a statement added.
The raid, carried in coordination with the Iraqi air force, was aimed at clearing out areas within the Salahiddin, Nineveh and Anbar provinces and between the borders with Syria.
In spite of announcing victory over the group in late 2017, Iraqi military operations are ongoing against fugitive members, who have fled to the outskirts of some cities. (end) sbr.sd
