TEHRAN, Feb. 21 (MNA) – Iraqi security forces managed to detain 3 ISIL terrorist forces in the Hawija region in Kirkuk province, local sources reported on Tuesday.

One of the terrorists was in charge of supplying and transporting explosives. Another one was in charge of recruiting young people, and the third one was in charge of distributing food to the families of ISIL terrorists.

In recent days, ISIL elements have once again carried out terrorist operations in different parts of Iraq.

ISIL, which attacked Iraq on June 7, 2014, and managed to capture about 45% of the country's territory for a short period of time, was defeated in November 2017; However, since then, the remanent members of the terrorist group are still present and operating in Iraq and Syria and carry out terrorist activities from time to time.

Iraqi security forces keep searching, clearing, and chasing ISIL across the country to make sure that ISIL and its escaped elements do not re-emerge.
