Iraqi security forces have arrested 20 ISIS terrorists in Mosul's right bank, security sources told the Baghdad Post on Tuesday. 


The sources added the arrests occurred during a pre-emptive operation by the police forces in the right bank of Mosul. 


Mosul, Iraq's second largest city, fell to ISIS in June 2014. 


A US-led campaign in cooperation with Iraqi forces and Iran-allied IMIS Militias managed to oust ISIS from Mosul. 


In December, 2017, Iraqi PM Haider Abadi declared full liberation of his country from ISIS. But the terror group's sleeper cells occasionally attack vital institutions and civilians.
