An extensive military operation has been started by the Iraqi army in the desert areas in western country to chase the remaining  ISIS terrorists elements hiding in the region, said the spokesman of the Iraqi Joint Operations Command.

 

“Special operations have been conducted in Iraq’s vast western desert area which is located between Saladin, Nineveh, and al-Anbar governorates and has many deep hidden tunnels,” said General Yayha Rasoul.


“Our forces are chasing the remaining Daesh terrorists in the deserts and mountains of Hamrin and Hawija, all being supported by Iraqi intelligence forces and planes,” he added. 

The Iraqi General stressed that the country’s borders with Syria and Turkey is fully secured and under the control of border guards and the army. 

Rasoul said that the ongoing operations are mainly focused on wiping out the terrorists that had tried to penetrate into Iraq via Syria. 

Iraqi officials said on Thursday that the country’s border with Syria is fully secure and Daesh elements are at least five kilometers away from the border inside Syria.
