3 ISIL wanted members detained in Iraqi capital

TEHRAN, May 09 (MNA) – Iraq's General Security Directorate (GSD) announced that three ISIL wanted members were arrested in the country's capital of Baghdad.

Iraqi forces managed to trap the wanted elements in Baghdad after gathering intelligence, Alsumaria reported.

The detained terrorists confessed that they have participated in several terrorist operations launched in the Iraqi provinces of Anbar and Raqqa.

Iraqi security forces continue to search, cleanse and pursue ISIL remnants throughout the country to ensure that ISIL and its fugitive elements do not reappear.

In December 2017, after nearly three and a half years of fighting with the ISIL terrorist group, which occupied about a third of the country, the Iraqi government announced the liberation of all its territories from the hands of this terrorist group.

The remaining elements of ISIL are still active in areas of Baghdad, Saladin, Diyala, Kirkuk, Niveneh and Al Anbar provinces.
