"More than 90% of the weapons and equipment that we found in American-made security operations can only be reached to ISIS with the approval of the American side and through  its planes that deliver supplies and equipment for ISIS groups in Hamrin basin, north of Diyala."

Al- Husseini did not rule out ISIS initiation to revive its "terrorist" states between Diyala - Kurdistan, Diyala - Salahuddin within the security-hot "Matybijah" enclaves.
