MOD: We will keep on pursuing Daesh terrorist groups

INA - BAGHDAD

The Ministry of Defence affirmed on Tuesday that the Iraqi forces will keep on pursuing Daesh terrorist groups and anyone that may affect the national security.

Noting that, Iraqi aircraft F16 targeted locations of Daesh terrorist groups inside the Syrian areas.

“Iraqi aircraft targeted these locations according to highly intelligent information. The targets included a two-story house that used to be a place of Daesh meetings to plan and execute terrorist operations against the Iraqi security forces and the innocent citizens,” said the MOD spokesman, Yahya Rasool to INA.

He explained that around 30 Daesh members have been killed.

“This is also the first operations achieved after the announcement of Trump to withdraw the US forces from Syria,” added Rasool.
