Two IS militants killed in airstrike in eastern Iraq

Xinhua, Baghdad

Two Islamic State (IS) militants were killed by an airstrike and two of the extremist group's financiers were captured on Friday in the eastern Diyala province, a provincial security official said.
 An Iraqi aircraft carried out an airstrike on an IS hideout near Mteibijah area near Diyala's provincial border with Salahudin province, Sadiq al-Husseini, head of the security committee of provincial council, told Xinhua.
The airstrike resulted in the killing of two of the extremist IS militants, al-Husseini said.
Previously, the Iraqi security forces tried to retake control of Mteibijah, but the vast rugged land and mountains have made it difficult for them to dislodge the extremist militants from the region.
Also in the province, security forces acted on intelligence reports and conducted an operation in Himreen Mountain range which stretches in the northern part of Diyala province and arrested two of IS groups financiers, al-Husseini added.
