Iraqi security forces strike Daesh militant positions in Diyala

 

 

Iraqi security forces have launched a clean-up operation against the sleeper cells of the Daesh Takfiri terrorist group in the country’s eastern province of Diyala as government troopers and allied fighters from Popular Mobilization Units are trying to flush the extremists out of the war-ravaged Arab country.

Captain Habib al-Shammari said the offensive targeted Daesh terrorists in al-Mukhisa area, and three terrorists were arrested during the operation.

“Daesh terrorist cells have recently become active in carrying out attacks against security personnel in deserted roads and areas,” Shammari said.   

Over the past few months, Daesh militant attacks against Iraqi security forces, pro-government volunteer fighters – better known by the Arabic word Hashd al-Sha’abi – and civilians have been on the rise in areas northeast of Diyala province.
