Vastavam web: The Iraqi air force today carried out a “deadly raid” against positions of the Islamic State group in neighbouring Syria, Prime Minister Haider al-Abadi’s office said.Abadi ordered the strike against the jihadists “because of the danger they pose to Iraqi territory,” a statement said.”These raids demonstrate the growing capacity of our armed forces to hunt down and liquidate terrorists,” it added.

Iraq declared victory in December against IS, which launched a sweeping offensive in 2014 and at one point controlled a third of the country.
