Shafaq News/ On Monday evening, the Iraqi aviation struck ISIS locations and hideouts north of Baghdad.

A security source told Shafaq News Agency, "The Iraqi Army aircrafts carried out two airstrikes in Al- Tarmiyah district, north of Baghdad targeting two sites of ISIS militants."

Earlier today, The Iraqi Army bombed sites of ISIS groups in the north of the Iraqi capital.

A source told Shafaq News Agency that the Iraqi Army targeted the extremist group's headquarters embedded inside the orchards of Al-Tarmiyah.

In a statement, the Security Media Cell reported that the consecutive airstrikes had killed six members of a terrorist cell in the Al-Ukaili orchard in the Al-Tabi area within the Al-Tarmiyah.

Al-Tarmiyah, 50 kilometers to the north of Baghdad, remains a stronghold of the toppled Caliphate state.

Sleeper cells sheltering inside the Sunni-majority district continue to wage attacks against civilians and security forces even though the Iraqi Army and al-Hashd al-Shaabi (Popular Mobilization Forces-PMF) launched a large-scale military operation to trace and pursue the remnants of the terrorist organization in July 2021.
