ISF arrested in Baghdad the ISIS leader for the Wilayat of Falluja. His capture could be linked to Operation Victory Will (Irada al-Nasr), underway between Anbar, Nineveh and Salahuddin
ISF have dealt another blow to Isis in Iraq, which is added to the operation Victory Will (Irada al-Nasr) underway in Anbar, Nineveh and Salahuddin. Baghdad intelligence has captured two elements of the Islamic State, one of which was the former commander-in-chief of the Wilayat (province) of Falluja. In the operation two containers of ammonium nitrate, a component used as fertilizer but also to produce explosives, were also seized. It seems, however, that the capture of the two Daesh jihadists is linked to maneuvers in the desert. There are no official confirmations, but information on the location of the militia (to the west of the capital) may have been provided to the military by members of the group captured in the desert in the past few hours. Certainly, however, the two IS fundamentalists planned attacks to be carried out soon. Perhaps because of revenge following the offensive.
The maneuvers meanwhile proceeded quickly. Daesh loses more territory in the Iraqi desert on the border with Syria
Meanwhile, Victory Will proceeds at a rapid pace in the delimited triangle. ISF in the past few hours have dismantled another ISIS base at Nineveh and cleaned up several villages on the border with Syria. The response of the Islamic State has so far been limited, but attempts to counterattack in the near future are not excluded. The Daesh militiamen, in fact, know that the maneuvers will not end until the large bag of resistance in the area has not been neutralized (it is no coincidence that other units in Baghdad are flowing into the area of operations). Furthermore, they have no escape routes to the west, as Jazeera Storm’s SDF and the Damascus Army (SAA) are sealing the borders with Deir Ezzor. As a result, there is no alternative to fighting.
