At least 13 pro-government fighters were killed in a ISIL attack in Iraq’s northern city of Mosul on Tuesday, according to an Iraqi military officer.

Scores of ISIL militants attacked military barracks and checkpoints belonging to the Hashd al-Shaabi militia in Tal Safuk, west of Mosul, Capt. Sabhan Kazem told Anadolu Agency.

He said clashes flared between the two sides for an hour before the attackers pulled out into the desert after the Iraqi army sent reinforcements into the area.

“Thirteen fighters were killed and a number of vehicles were damaged in the attack,” he said.

No casualties were reported among ISIL militants.

Last week, Iraqi Prime Minister Haidar al-Abadi announced that the war against the ISIL terrorist group was over, saying that Iraq’s border with Syria had been completely secured.

ISIL has recently suffered a string of defeats in Iraq and Syria after overrunning much of both countries in mid-2014.
