Iraq, the ISF decimate the Isis leadership with a series of arrests

The ISF of Operation Victory Will (Irada al-Nasr) decimates the ISIS i Iraq leadership. Captured a close aide of al-Baghdadi and several senior figures of the Islamic State

Massive campaign of arrests in Iraq against ISIS cells. The ISF of Operation Victory Will (Irada al-Nasr) have decimated the leadership of the Islamic State in the Middle Eastern country. One of Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi’s closest aides was captured in Nineveh. The man, whose personal details were not given, was at the head of a Daesh group responsible for numerous attacks not only in the Middle Eastern country. But also against embassies and churches in Egypt and Syria. It seems, however, that similar actions were also planned in the province. In Tarmiyah, however, an emir and some of his men were blocked. Finally, in Kirkuk, there was a blitz of the commandos in Hawija, which led to the arrest of two other jihadists. These were at the top of a group, specializied in attacks against soldiers and the local population.

Meanwhile, anti-Daesh maneuvers are proceeding at a rapid pace and in the second phase they are also adding Baghdad to Anbar, Nineveh, Salahuddin and Diyala

Meanwhile, the second phase of Operation Victory Will continues at a rapid pace. The ISF in the past few hours have reclaimed from the presence of Isis twelve villages north of Baghdad. The capital, in fact, has become part of the areas involved in the maneuvers against the Islamic State, along with Anbar, Nineveh, Salahuddin and Diyala (the mountains of Hamrin). The aim of the offensive is to neutralize all the jihadist cells, forcing the remaining cells to flee to the desert in the west. This, in order to close the Daesh militiamen in a small area. At that point the final phase of the operation will begin: the land invasion to permanently eliminate the last IS resistance in Iraq.
