Security forces destroy ISIS tunnels, IEDs in Nineveh

Iraqi security forces have managed on Wednesday night to destroy a number of ISIS tunnels and improvised explosive devises in Nineveh and Salahuldin provinces in northern Baghdad.

According to spokesman for security media center Brigadier Yehia Rasul, the Iraqi security forces carried out an inspection operation in southern Mosul, during which, a number of ISIS remnants were seized.

He added that the Iraqi forces have seized 12 explosive devices, two hand grenades and two mortar shells.

 He added that the forces have also destroyed two tunnels that were used by ISIS terrorists in mounting attacks.

"The forces also discovered three Katyusha rockets. They were all detonated without reporting losses," he went on to say.

ISIS has occupied vast areas from Iraq and Syria in 2014.
Three years later, the terror group was expelled after massive military operations in partnership with the US-led coalition. 

But remnants of the terror group are still planning a comeback. They are aided by local officials and pro-Iran militias.
