Federal Police

Spokesman for Iraqi Security Media Center Yahya Rasoul announced on Wednesday that Federal Police seized 24 improvised explosive devices (IEDs) belonging to ISIS terrorist group during a security operation in Kirkuk province.

Rasoul added that the police also seized seven Kalashnikov rifles and other ammunition, pointing out that three ISIS guesthouses have been destroyed during the operation.

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.
