Iraqi security forces have managed to repel attacks of the ISIL, Sunday in the al-Baghdadi district of the western province of Anbar, police said.
“The Iraqi security forces, backed by tribal fighters and the Iraqi air forces managed to repel ISIL group’s attack in al-Baghdadi district and killed 30 ISIL militants during the clashes,” police chief of Hit district in Anbar, Colonel Salah al-Delimi, said.
ISIL militants had attacked from two bridges in the northeastern side of the district.
Also in Anbar, the Iraqi security forces managed to kill another 10 ISIL militants in the district of Haditha.
The claims from the Iraqi authorities could not be independently verified.
ISIL controls numerous areas of the Anbar governorate.
The U.S. is leading an international coalition that has carried out numerous airstrikes against ISIL in Iraq and Syria since the militant group took over Mosul, in northern Iraq, in June.
