A total of 10 Daesh militants were killed, in an operation against a Daesh hideout, south of Mosul, capital of Iraq's northern province of Nineveh, the Iraqi military said, Saturday.

The provincial Rapid Response elite police force, backed by Iraqi aircraft, raided the Daesh hideout, at a large cave near al-Shoura area, Brig. Gen. Yahya Rasoul, spokesman of the Iraqi Joint Operations Command, said, in a brief statement.

Meanwhile, another provincial police force, captured five suspected Daesh militants in Mosul, some 400 km north of Baghdad, after tip-offs from civilians and intelligence reports, Rasoul said, in a separate statement.

The security in Iraq has dramatically improved, since Iraqi forces fully defeated the Daesh militants across the country, late in 2017.

However, militant remnants regrouped in urban and rugged areas, carrying out attacks against security forces and civilians, despite operations from time to time, to hunt them down.
