Iraqi Forces Attack Daesh Remnants in Desert Region
Local Editor

Iraqi forces began a major operation Wednesday against Daesh [the Arabic acronym for Takfiri ‘ISIS/ISIL' group] terrorists hiding out in a northeastern desert region, the military said.

The army, rapid intervention forces and paramilitaries, in coordination with Kurdish fighters and with Iraqi and coalition air cover, launched the operation east of Tuz Khurmatu "to chase away Daesh remnants," said Iraq's Security Information Center.

Iraqi forces retook several villages and stormed a Daesh camp, according to the rapid intervention forces.

The operation met no initial resistance, an AFP journalist at the scene said.

Iraq declared victory against Daesh in December, more than three years after the terrorist group seized a third of its territory and swathes of neighboring Syria, declaring a so-called "caliphate" ruling over millions of people.
