Security forces destroy 4 ISIS guesthouses in Diyala

Commander of Diyala operations Lieutenant General Mezher al-Azzawi announced on Wednesday that security forces destroyed four guesthouses belong to ISIS terrorist group Northeast of Diyala’s Baqubah city.

Azzawi added that the forces also seized four improvised explosive devices, in addition to a motorcycle.

Earlier on Wednesday, a military operation has been launched in Diyala province in order to search for six civilians kidnapped by ISIS last week.

Although Prime Minister Haider al-Abadi announced full liberation of Iraqi lands and the end of war against ISIS in December 2017, Iraqi cities are witnessing acts of violence as terrorist group's sleeper cells continue to launch attacks targeting civilians and security forces.
