New phase of Operation Victory Will against Isis in Iraq. ISF maneuvers are concentrated in Salahuddin, Kirkuk, Samarra and Diyala
New phase for the anti-ISIS operation in Iraq, Victory Will. This was announced by the spokesman of the ISF Joint Operations Command (JOC), General Tahsin al-Khafaji. According to the senior official, maneuvers against the Islamic State have just begun in Salahuddin, Kirkuk, Samarra and Diyala. Objective: to destroy the logistics network of Daesh and the sleeping cells in the four provinces. Moreover, the offensive is already bearing fruit. On the first day eleven militia shelters were destroyed and 50 kilos of urea were seized. It is a chemical component that IS uses to manufacture improvised devices (IEDs). Not surprisingly, 23 IEDs were also found during the raids. We work tirelessly to prevent possible jihadist attacks, especially in Baghdad.
The objective of the offensive is to reduce the ability of Daesh to carry out attacks in the country, exploiting protests in progress
According to Iraqi intelligence, Isis plans to exploit protests in the country to carry out bomb attacks. This is because the police are distracted by the demonstrations. So far the ISF have succeeded in blocking several attempts by the Islamic State and limiting the scope of those that have succeeded. The last Daesh bombs, in fact, exploded in peripheral areas and not in the center. But the military knows that it is only a matter of time before IS succeeds. As a result, they have increased pressing, with the aim of reducing the fundamentalist’s operational capacity and removing the logistical support needed to carry out attacks throughout the Middle Eastern nation. The new Victory will phase, in fact, has no expiration. Like the previous ones, it will end when the set goals have been achieved.
