On Wednesday, the Iraqi army said it had killed 196 IS militants and recaptured 98 villages around Hawija.

Troops, police and paramilitaries "liberated the whole of the centre of Hawija and are continuing their advance", the operation's commander, Lieutenant General Abdel Amir Yarallah, said on Thursday morning.
