    Seven senior Daesh commanders, including the organization's intelligence and security chief, were killed in an airstrike by the Iraqi air force in western Iraq on Monday, a press service for the Iraqi military and security bodies said.

    CAIRO (Sputnik) — According to the press service, the airstrike targeted IS leaders in the western Anbar province, on the border with Syria. There were commanders of large Daesh armed groups operating in Iraq and Syria, as well as the head of a Sharia court in the so-called "Euphrates Province" — a large area straddling Iraq and Syria that Daesh has declared as an administrative division of its "Caliphate."
