Iraqi army forces, supported by international coalition warplanes, have destroyed two underground hideouts belonging to the "Islamic State of Iraq and Syria" (ISIS) in western Anbar, the Joint Operations Command said Friday (September 20th).

Kornet anti-tank missiles and various weapons were also seized in the operation, command spokesman Brig. Gen. Yahya Rasul told Diyaruna.

"Acting on accurate intelligence and aerial footage, the army located two underground hideouts near the phosphate mines in Akashat," he said.

They are now combing the area looking for any ISIS remnants, he said.
