Iraqi Air Force Hits ISIL's Military Positions Hard in Salahuddin, Anbar Provinces.

TEHRAN (FNA)- The Iraqi air force continued pounding ISIL's military positions in different parts of Anbar and Salahuddin provinces, and inflicted heavy losses and casualties on the Takfiri terrorist group.

The Iraqi F16 fighter jets hit and destroyed 11 targets of the ISIL group, killing 49 Takfiri terrorists.

The ISIL's military hardware also sustained heavy losses in the Iraqi airstrikes.

In a relevant development on Saturday, the Iraqi volunteer forces (Hashd al-Shaabi) announced that the people have exploded the ISIL's tallest flag tower in the center of al-Sharqat region in Northern Salahuddin province as anti-ISIL attacks have increased in recent weeks.

"The residents of al-Sharqat city used explosives to destroy the ISIL's tallest flag tower in the city," the Arabic-language Sumeria News quoted Hashd al-Shaabi Commander Jabbar al-Ma'amouri as saying.

He said that the move by al-Sharqat residents shows their hatred for the terrorists.
