Iraqi Army thwarts ISIL plots in Saladin

TEHRAN, May 15 (MNA) – Iraqi forces thwarted an attempt by remnants of the ISIL terrorists to infiltrate Saladin province in central Iraq on Sunday.

ISIL takfiri elements were trying to enter Saladin which is situated in central Iraq, but their plots failed due to the timely operation of Iraqi Army forces.

A number of ISIL terrorists fled the area after facing the Iraqi forces.

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.
