Iraq launches operation against ISIS remnants in Diyala: sources

Iraqi forces have launched a large-scale military operation to track down ISIS terrorist group's remnants in the province's Buhriz town, military sources told the Baghdad Post Tuesday.

The sources added that the operation will include areas from southern Diyala to the borders of the capital Baghdad, pointing out that the results of the operation will be announced soon.

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.
