Iraq's Defense Ministry: Senior Military Commander Killed while Fighting ISIS

Iraqi Army forces clash with ISIL west of Mosul

Sniper fire by ISIS militants has killed a senior Iraqi commander near the city of Mosul in the province of Nineveh, Iraq’s Defense Ministry said late Tuesday.

Brig. Ahmed Badr al-Luhaibi, the commander of Brigade 71st of Division 15, was killed by a sniper during a military operation south of Mosul.

Mosul — Iraq’s second-largest city  – is the terrorist group’s main bastion in Iraq. It’s the provincial capital of ISIS militants.

In late March the Iraqi military and its allies launched a series of military operations near Mosul in order to put additional pressure on the ISIS terrorist group amid the ongoing advance another major Iraqi city, Fallujah.
