Iraqi Army has announced the dismantling of 4 Daesh positions in eastern Iraq in an operation launched by the military. The operation was launched in response to an increasing Daesh activity in the border areas inside the Saladin province.
The operation came after a senior police officer was killed on Saturday in a roadside bomb blast in northern Tikrit in eastern Iraq.
Last December, officials in Baghdad declared that Daesh’s military presence in Iraq had been all but dismantled over operations backed by the U.S.-led International Alliance.
However, from time to time, Iraqi officials announce operations against Daesh-affiliated “sleeper cells” in certain parts of the country.
