Iraqi Defense Ministry announced on Wednesday that two ISIS terrorists were
arrested in Anbar.
In a statement, the ministry said, “depending on accurate intelligence information troops managed to arrest three terrorists who belong to ISIS terrorist group in Abū al Jīr and Al-Sofia areas in Ramadi city in Anbar.
During investigations, “the militants admitted to belonging to ISIS and carrying out several operations against police, army as well as civilians,” the statement added.
Thousands of ISIS militants as well as Iraqi civilians were killed since the government campaign, backed by paramilitary troops and the coalition, was launched in October 2016 to fight the militant group.
In December, Abadi announced full liberation of Iraqi lands, declaring end of war against ISIS terrorists. However, they continued to launch sporadic attacks across Iraq against troops. Security reports indicate that the militant group still poses threat against stability in the country.
