The airstrike killed six IS militants, including a local IS leader, Mohammed said.The provinces, which the IS militants had previously controlled, have witnessed their intense activities during the past months, despite repeated military operations to hunt them down.The security situation in Iraq has been improving since the Iraqi forces defeated the IS in 2017.
