Nearly 50 percent of the regions between Salahuddin and Anbar provinces were liberated from ISIS terror group, the Joint Operations Command announced Saturday. 


The command added in a statement that the forces defused more than 250 explosives and destroyed a booby-trapping workshop.


This came during combing 36 villages to purge Upper Euphrates and al-Jazeera regions.

In the same context, US-led coalition air strikes killed 15 ISIS terrorists in the western desert, the War Media Cell said in a statement.

This goes against former statements that Iraqi army had fully liberated regions of al-Jazeera and Upper Euphrates.
