Many ISIS terrorists escaped from Mosul battles by hiding among civilians, Former Nineveh Governor Atheel al-Nujaifi said on Sunday.
Intelligence, press reports indicate that ISIS clahses with the security forces in southern, western aimed to create a distraction to create safe passages for its terrorists, Nujaifi asserted.
Right now, ISIS terrorists managed to escape Mosul and the group leaders deployed them in different areas in Iraq, Nujaifi further added.
ISIS' sleeper cells are currently waiting for any civil or political unrest to renew their terror activities once more, Nujaifi revealed.
The only solution to vanquish ISIS terrorists is total reconciliation within different Iraqi ethnicities, Nujaifi noted.
