Three Islamic State militants were killed Saturday in an air raid by the Iraqi Air Force on a terrorist hotbed in Anbar, a security source from the province’s operations command was quoted as saying.

Speaking to the privately-owned Almaalomah news agency, the source pointed out that Iraqi warplanes targeted three Islamic State militants riding two motorbikes and trying to sneak into Wadi al-Shaib, which leads to al-Kasrat area, west of Ramadi, the capital of Anbar province.

“The three terrorists were killed and their motorbikes were destroyed in the airstrike,” the source said, adding that a large cache of weapons were found at the scene.

Iraq declared the collapse of Islamic State’s territorial influence in November 2017 with the recapture of Rawa, a city on Anbar’s western borders with Syria, which was the group’s last bastion in Iraq.
