Maxi anti-ISIS operation in the Hamrin mountains in Diyala starts in Iraq. Objective: to eliminate the Islamic State group in the area and the galleries used to hide
A large-scale operation has begun in Iraq to eliminate the last Isis pockets in the Hamrin mountains. Numerous assets of the ISF special forces, supported by the Global Coalition, participate in the maneuvers, which are held in the province of Diyala on the border with Iran. The goal is not just to eliminate the militants of the Islamic State in the area, but also to destroy all the caves, tunnel networks and shelters where they hide. The offensive appears to be strategic for Baghdad, which has placed the commander of the anti-terrorist forces, Abdul-Wahab al-Sa’idi, at its head and has no fixed duration. Indeed, it seems that there is a large group of Daesh jihadists in the quadrant who regularly assault local villages and extort “taxes” from residents to finance themselves. IS terrorists represent a real danger not only for the region, but also for the entire Middle Eastern country.
In Syria, SDF continue to hunt Daesh sleeper cells, from Raqqa to Deir Ezzor. These turned into guerrilla warfare and attacked civilians for revenge
Meanwhile, in Syria, SDF are continuing the manhunt towards the Isis sleeper cells, from Raqqa to Deir Ezzor. The goal is to stop the wave of terrorist attacks that Islamic State elements have initiated in the major cities of the Kurdish region. The last happened in Manbij only a few hours ago, fortunately without causing victims. Since Daesh was definitively defeated, losing the battle of Baghouz, it has turned into a guerrilla movement, which for revenge hits the population. The jihadists, in fact, know they have no chances against the troops of Jazeera Storm, unless they are small isolated units like patrols, and consequently have turned to soft targets: local civilians. These are less defended and attacking them still guarantees a media echo, not to mention that it feeds fear.
