Baghdad (The Times Groupe)- The Iraqi military says it has captured 38 militants from the Daesh (ISIS) terror group.
Ali Al Fariji, chief of Kirkuk’s operations command, told The Times Groupe that a large quantity of weapons and ammunition were seized during Saturday’s raid.
Eight terror groups’ shelters were also destroyed, according to the official.
Recent months have seen an increase in attacks blamed on Daesh terrorists in Iraq, especially in Salahuddin, Diyala and Kirkuk.
The Iraqi government declared victory against Daesh in 2017 by reclaiming all of the territory occupied by the terror group in 2014, about a third of the country.
The terror group still maintains sleeper cells throughout Iraq and occasionally attacks.
Iraqi forces continue to conduct frequent operations against the group.
