Forty insurgents of the Islamic State in Iraq and the Levant (ISIL), an al-Qaeda—linked group, are dead after a clash with the Iraqi army in the volatile western city of Fallujah, a military spokesman said Friday.
An army ground and air offensive in the city was responsible for “killing 40 terrorists and destroying 15 vehicles loaded with weaponry,” General Mohammed al—Askari added in a statement.
The official did not give figures about potential casualties among government troops.
