Diyala: Seven ISIS strongholds are destroyed

Shafaq News / A security source in Diyala reported today, Wednesday that 7 ISIS targets were destroyed by missile strikes in the vicinity of Jalawla district, northeast of Baqubah.

The source told Shafaq News agency, "Forces from the 20th Brigade - Commandos of the Iraqi Army bombed locations for ISIS in Sheikh Baba, in the vicinity of Jalawla sub-district, 70 km northeast of Baqubah, with artillery, which resulted in the destruction of 7 hideouts." .

The source added, "ISIS hideouts contained supplies and logistical materials with no dead found."

It is noteworthy that the areas of the Sheikh Baba Basin have been witnessing security turmoil for more than a year after the infiltration of ISIS members fleeing from the liberated areas and governorates to the orchards and agricultural reeds.

The withdrawal of the Peshmerga forces on October 2017 caused a breakdown in the vicinity of Khanaqin district and Jalawla sub-district, which did not witness any attacks or terrorist incidents during the presence of the Peshmerga.

Jalawla district is located 70 km northeast of Baqubah and is inhabited by a mixture of Arabs, Kurds and Turkmen, and the district fell to ISIS in August 2014 before it was retaken in November of the same year.
