Iraqi government forces have recaptured more than a dozen other villages near Hawijah as they successfully carry out the second phase of a joint operation with allied fighters from the Popular Mobilization Units to push Daesh Takfiri terrorists out of the strategic town in the country’s oil-rich northern province of Kirkuk.
Iraqi authorities say they have moved some 1,400 foreign wives and children of suspected Daesh Takfiri terrorists to a new site north of Mosul, which used to be the terror group’s de facto capital in the Arab country, dismissing the concerns of aid organizations.
Syrian government forces, backed by allied fighters from popular defense groups, have come closer to encircling Daesh Takfiri terrorists in a pocket of the strategic eastern city of Dayr al-Zawr after crossing over the Euphrates River.
The Takfiri Daesh terrorist group has reportedly executed one of its high-ranking militant commanders in Iraq’s northern oil-rich province of Kirkuk on charges of “attempts to escape to the land of non-believers.”
A division of Iran’s Islamic Revolution Guards Corps (IRGC) said on Wednesday it has arrested a Takfiri terrorist linked to a Daesh-affiliated ring, which planned to carry out terror attacks in the capital, Tehran.
