Iraqi PM Haidar Abadi said Thursday his country's security and military forces will eliminate all terrorist cells, praising Wednesday's successful strike against five ISIS bastions that killed dozens of terrorists.
This came during a meeting held by Abadi in the joint operations command headquarters with security, military and intelligence leaders in the presence of the ministers of defense and interior.
A statement from Abadi's office said the premier ordered a new operation against ISIS remnants in central Iraq after civilians have been recently abducted and killed by the terrorist group.
According to the statement, Abadi, who is the commander-in-chief of Iraqi forces,
vowed to eliminate the terrorist groups and bring them to justice.
