Denmark to Pull Special Forces from Iraq
Local Editor

The Danish Defence Ministry said Thursday that the country would pull around 60 of its special forces from Iraq as most of the Wahhabi Daesh [Arabic acronym for "ISIS" / "ISIL"] -controlled areas have been freed.

The withdrawing process will conclude in late autumn, while Denmark will still leave in Iraq around 180 military personnel deployed at the al-Asad air base.

The remaining forces will contribute to radar surveillance as part of an international coalition against Daesh.

Iraq has long been suffering from activities of various terrorist groups. In 2014, vast territories of the Middle Eastern state were occupied by Daesh.

The Iraqi army has successfully fought back against Daesh over the past year. In December, Iraqi Prime Minister Haider Abadi declared an end to the country's fight against Daesh as Iraqi troops re-established complete control over the country's Syrian border.
