After the liberation of this settlement, the strategically important for the region highway connecting Al-Huweiju with Kirkuk passed under the full control of the Iraqi troops. In the course of the operation in the Khuweiji area, Iraqi units liberated more than a hundred and fifty villages in which the militants of the so-called “Islamic State” (*) were previously hiding behind civilians.
