A top commander of Iraq’s volunteer forces has said aircraft serving the so-called anti-ISIL coalition formed by the US drop weapons for the Takfiri terrorist group.
Secretary General of Badr Organization Hadi al-Ameri said there was compelling evidence that the coalition’s aircraft threw arms and aid to the extremist group in the Salahuddin province in north-central Iraq.
He also said the coalition had failed to clear any area from the ISIL militants, adding that volunteer forces only relied on local support in their clean-up and liberation operations against the terrorists.
Ameri added the volunteer forces would soon secure areas in Salahuddin and Kirkuk, which remain in the hands of the ISIL.
The ISIL terrorists control some parts of Iraq and Syria. They are engaged in crimes against humanity in the areas under their control. They have terrorized and killed people of all communities, including Shias, Sunnis, Kurds, and Christians.
Since August, the US and some of its allies have been conducting airstrikes against what they say are ISIL positions in Iraq. Some members of the US-led coalition also started bombarding ‘ISIL targets’ inside Syria in September.
However, the raids have so far failed to dislodge the Takfiri group.
