    The US-led coalition strikes in Iraq’s western province of Anbar have killed 21 members of the Daesh terrorist group (outlawed in numerous countries), including its leaders, local media reported Sunday, citing a military source.

    MOSCOW (Sputnik) — Daesh terrorists were killed in the Syrian town of Rawa by shelling of the coalition's military jets, which subsequently destroyed three Daesh houses, the source said, according to the Iraqi News outlet.

    The US-led coalition of 68 nations is conducting airstrikes, ground-based and rocket-propelled artillery fire against Daesh in Syria and Iraq.

    The coalition-backed Iraqi forces recaptured the eastern part of the Daesh stronghold in Iraq this January after months of fighting and crossed the Tigris river in February to drive terrorists from more densely populated western districts.
