Foreign ISIS fighters killed in air strike

16 June 2015, 08:00

Mosul -  The forensic medicine authority in the Islamic State-controlled northern Iraqi city of Mosul has received the bodies of 122 Islamic State insurgents in 24 hours, an official with the authority said on Monday.

Most of the dead were fighters of various nationalities killed in an air strike conducted south of Mosul by the US-led alliance against the extremist group, the official told dpa on condition of anonymity.

The official added that the Islamic State had told the forensic authority in Mosul not to record or to reveal the number of dead.

Dozens of Islamic State militants injured during offensives against the extremist group are currently receiving treatment at Mosul hospitals, the official said.

Islamic State captured Mosul, Iraq's second-largest city, last summer at the start of a lightning offensive that saw it seize much of Sunni Arab northern and western Iraq.

Kurdish and Iraqi security forces backed by US-led air strikes have pushed the jihadists back from some of the areas they captured, but in May the group seized the western provincial capital of Ramadi.
