Security forces launch offensive to uproot ISIS remnants from southern Baqubah

Iraqi security forces on Wednesday launched an operation to pursue ISIS terrorists in areas of Budib, Budish, and Srianaa in southern Baqubah, a security source said.

The operation aims to eliminate ISIS terrorists and prevent them from regrouping in the southern areas of Baqubah, the source added.

Although Prime Minister Haider al-Abadi announced the full liberation of Iraqi lands and the end of the 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.
