Iraq Launches Op to Clear Desert Bordering Syria of Daesh
Local Editor

Iraqi forces launched an operation on Thursday to clear the desert bordering Syria of Daesh [the Arabic acronym for terrorist ‘ISIS/ISIL' group], a final campaign to rid Iraq of the Takfiri group, the military said in a statement.

Troops from the Iraqi army and Hashd al-Shaa'bi [Popular Mobilization Forces] were taking part in the campaign against terrorists hiding in a large strip of border land, Iraqi military officials said.

"The objective behind the operation is to prevent remaining Daesh groups from melting into the desert region and using it as a base for future attacks," said army Col. Salah Kareem.

Meanwhile, Iraqi Prime Minister Haider al-Abadi said on Tuesday that Daesh had been defeated from a military perspective but he would only declare final victory after Daesh terrorists were routed in the desert.

Iraqi forces on Friday captured the border town of Rawa, the last remaining town under Daesh control, signaling the collapse of the group's "caliphate" proclaimed after it overran much of Iraq's north and west in 2014.
