Iraqi parliament calls for eliminating ISIS sleeper cells in Baghdad

Iraqi parliament calls for eliminating ISIS sleeping cells in Baghdad
Iraqi parliament defense committee urged the Iraqi forces to launch military operations to eliminate ISIS sleeper cells in Baghdad and the surrounding areas, the member of the committee Iskandar Watout said on Saturday.

He added that the challenges, during the next phase, lay in eradicating these cells.

Watout pointed out that Iraq needs the cooperation of its citizens with the security forces to inform ISIS suspects and those involved in terrorist activities.

This came after Iraqi Prime Minister Haider al-Abadi declared last week that Iraq has become free of ISIS and the troops were now in complete control of the Iraqi territories.

ISIS terror outfit has been incurring huge losses in Iraq in recent months, with its affiliates expelled entirely from Mosul, Tal Afar and other areas.
