Iraqi Forces Drive Back Massive Attack by Daesh, Kill 30 Militants
Iraq's Popular Mobilization Forces, also known as Hashd al-Shaabi, foiled an attack launched by the Daesh (ISIL or ISIS) Takfiri group on a village west of the northern city of Mosul, killing over 30 of the foreign-backed terrorists.
The Daesh terrorists launched the attack on Ayn al Hisan village in the western suburbs of Mosul, according to the Arabic language Al Mayadeen TV network.
In an operation, the popular forces successfully repulsed the offensive and inflicted heavy losses on the Takfiri militants, who had attempted to open their routes to Syrian borders.
The Hashd al-Shaabi forces managed to kill more than 30 Daesh terrorists and destroy 7 armored vehicles, the report said.
It came as the Iraqi army and Popular Mobilization Units backed by Kurdish Peshmerga forces continue their operations to liberate Mosul from the foreign-backed terrorists.
They launched a joint operation on October 17 to retake Mosul.
Mosul, Iraq's second largest city and the capital of Nineveh Province, fell into the hands of Daesh in June 2014.
