Iraq pounds 6 ISIL hideouts in Saladin

TEHRAN, Jun. 20 (MNA) – An Iraqi information center affiliated with the Office of the Prime Minister announced that the Iraqi military and security forces managed to confiscate and destroy 6 hideouts belonging to the ISIL terrorists in Saladin.

Some communication equipment, food, logistics equipment and explosives belonging to the ISIL terrorists were also dismantled.

On the other hand, it is reported that the PMU forces have cleared 160 kilometers of the deserts leading to the Saudi border to facilitate the traffic of the pilgrims.

PMU has used UAVs and thermal cameras during the operation to counter any terrorist attack.

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 terror terrorist group in December 2017.

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