Security forces raid areas in western Iraq in search for ISIS militias


A security source in Anbar told The Baghdad Post on Friday that Iraqi security forces raided areas in the western desert between Al-Qa’im and the border with Syria.

The forces, according to the source, managed to launch a campaign to inspect and take control over the areas after some intel suggested that ISIS militias took advantage of the bad weather in western Iraq to sneak in.

The source also added that security personnel closed all the roads leading to the targeted areas.
