8 Senior Islamic State Commanders Killed by Iraqi Airforce

During air strikes by the Iraqi airforce eight senior Islamic State commanders were killed, Iraqi state TV reported on Wednesday citing a military statement.

"F-16 planes killed dozens of terrorists including eight senior commanders of Daesh in strikes on Hawija (city located 210 km (130 miles) north of Baghdad) and Anbar," said the statement, without giving further details, the Jerusalem Post reports.

Iraq's armed forces on Tuesday started an attack to withdraw Islamic State militants from Ramadi, the capital of the western Anbar province, that they captured in May.
