Iraqi forces kill scores ISIS terrorists near Iranian border
The Iraqi Armed Forces confronted a large Islamic State (ISIS) group inside the Al-Miqdadiyah District of Diyala, today, resulting in a series of intense clashes.
Led by Hashd Al-Sha’abi;s (Popular Mobilization Units) 4th Special Forces Brigade, the Iraqi Armed Forces eliminated at least 13 Islamic State terrorists in the Al-Miqdadiyah District on Sunday morning.
Hashd Al-Sha’abi has been working relentlessly to clear the Islamic State hot-zones inside the Diyala Governorate; however, the terrorist group continues to operate sleeper cells around the province.
The Diyala Governorate is located just west of Iran, making Iraq’s border security a top priority for Baghdad and Tehran.
