Iraqi Army smashes ISIL positions in Al-Anbar

TEHRAN, Feb. 06 (MNA) – Iraqi army forces smashed ISIL takfiri terrorist positions in Al-Anbar province in a large-scale operation.

Iraqi armed forces continue their series of counter-terrorism operations in different parts of the country, Baghdad Today reported.

In this regard, the Iraqi army has launched a new operation in Al-Anbar province. 

According to the report, Iraqi security officials announced that the operation was carried out in the city of Al-Qa'im in Anbar province.

As these sources reported, the operation was carried out after gathering confidential information from the areas where the Takfiris were stationed.

Iraqi army forces pounded ISIL takfiri terrorist positions during an operation in Al-Qa'im and managed to dominate a number of these positions.

Meanwhile, the Iraqi army has recently launched the first phase of Operation Aswad Al-Jazeera (Lions of Island) in three provinces. Security sources said that the operation will continue against the Takfiris from nine directions.

The operation is carried out with the support of the Iraqi Army Air Force.

Following the liberation of Mosul in July 2017 and the end of the alleged caliphate of ISIL, many terrorists hid in the Iraqi provinces, especially Diyala, Kirkuk, Saladin, Al Anbar, and Nineveh, which have suitable geographical conditions for operations. They have carried out various terrorist operations over the past year.

ISIL forces have intensified their attacks on Iraqi civilians and security forces in the past three months.

In recent months, Hashd al-Sha’abi forces and the Iraqi Army have carried out a series of operations against ISIL members in Al Anbar, Nineveh, Saladin governorates since the middle of last month.
