Terrorist remnants besieged, ISIS cannot return to Iraq: Rasool

Iraq’s Joint Operations Command denied the threat of the return of ISIS to Iraq after the Iraqi cities were declared liberated in late 2017.

Yehia Rasool, a spokesman for the Iraqi Security Media Center, said that only some defeated remnants of the terrorist group are still hiding in some desert and mountainous areas.

These remnants carry out terrorist attacks from time to time. However, they are besieged and are being targeted by security forces in coordination with the intelligence services, Rasool added.

The ongoing terrorist attacks by some sleeper agents are just attempts to deliver a message that ISIS is still present in the region, according to the command. Source
