At Least 13 Jihadists Killed in Coalition Attacks in Iraq

MOSUL, Iraq – At least 13 jihadists were killed and nine others wounded by the U.S.-led international coalition in attacks west of the northern Iraqi city of Mosul, a Kurdish source told Efe on Thursday.

Ghayas Surchi, the spokesman for the Patriotic Union of Kurdistan (PUK) told Efe that the strikes targeted jihadist positions of the Islamic State group in Tel Usud, 17 kilometers (11 miles) from Mosul, the capital of the province of Nineveh.

The international coalition also struck a jihadist convoy composed of five vehicles, four of which were destroyed in the vicinity of Al-Khazar River.

Over the past two days, Mosul and its surroundings have been the scene of air strikes by the coalition as ousting the IS fighters from the city is a key strategic aim of the Iraqi government.

The jihadists occupied Mosul, Iraq’s second-largest city, last June and declared a “caliphate” in territories under their control in northern Iraq and Syria.
