BEIRUT, LEBANON (5:20 P.M.) – The Iraqi Armed Forces carried out a new operation in northern Iraq this week that targeted the Islamic State’s (ISIS/ISIL/IS/Daesh) hideouts in the Hamrin Mountains.

According to the official media wing of the Iraqi security forces, their troops managed to kill dozens of Islamic State terrorists, while also destroying a number of tunnels and hideouts.

The Iraqi security forces said the operation was carried out in cooperation with the Iraqi Air Force, who conducted several strikes on the Islamic State’s positions in the Hamrin Mountains.

In their statement, the Iraqi security forces confirmed the successful operations in the Kanoukh area and Talat Al-Hamrin, pointing out that as many as 25 terrorists were killed, while also destroying nine tunnels and a training camp.

Despite the Islamic State’s defeat on the battlefield, the terrorist group has maintained several sleeper cells across the country.

ISIS has relied on these sleeper cells to carry out sporadic terrorist attacks against both the civilian population and military.

LA misma estrategia tiene que usar Siria en zonas desérticas donde están los terroristas de ISIS.
