(Iraq Now News)- International coalition aircraft.

Anbar (IraqiNews.com) An Islamic State leader was killed in an air raid carried out by the U.S.-led Coalition jets, which targeted the group’s havens in western Anbar, a security source said.

“IS leader, known as Saddam Ahmed Karrati, was killed along with big number of militants in Qaim,” the source told Alghad Press on Wednesday.

In related news, three schools were shelled by coalition jets in Qaim, another source said.

“Aerial bombardment by Coalition jets targeted three schools in al-Karabla region,” the source added.

Moreover, the source said, “IS detained 200 persons from Qaim as families were trying to escape.

Earlier on the day, a convoy of 19 families, coming from Rutba, west of Anbar, reportedly arrived at Camp 18, located west of Ramadi, while twenty other families headed toward Rutba, after escaping IS.

Previous news reports on Wednesday said the militant group executed five young people in front of their families who had been caught fleeing town of Qaim, on Anbar’s western borders with Syria, towards the city of Rutba to the east.

Anbar’s western towns of Anah, Qaim and Rawa are still held by the extremist group since 2014, when it occupied one third of Iraq to proclaim a self-styled Islamic Caliphate.

Iraqi troops were able to return life back to normal in the biggest cities of Anbar including Fallujah, Ramadi and others after recapturing them.

Fighter jets from the Iraqi army and the international coalition regularly pound IS locations in the province.
