Iraqi forces destroyed an underground guesthouse belongs to the ISIS, containing arms and ammunition in Diyala province, a security source said on Wednesday.
Spokesman for the Iraqi Security Media Council, Brigadier Yehia Rasool said that the troops of Diyala Operations Command inspected several villages in the province, destroying a five-room guesthouse belonging to ISIS terrorist group.
The troops also destroyed a locally-made explosive device during an inspection tour at Balad Ruz city located in Diyala.
ISIS dominated most of the Iraqi cities in 2014, but the national army managed to restore the Iraqi territories in mid and end of 2017.
But yet, there are remnants in some of the cities. The army often launches military campaigns to chase the sleeper cells. This tense atmosphere and rampant violence represented an impediment to Iraqi voters who mostly boycotted the ongoing elections.
