Iraqi forces have detained a senior Daesh militant in the northern city of Mosul, according to the Interior Ministry on Wednesday.

The militant was rounded up during a raid by Rapid Response forces in western Mosul, ministry spokesman Saad Maan said in a statement, without providing further details.

Military officer Colonel Ahmed al-Jabouri said the raid was part of a security campaign to hunt down Daesh militants in the western part of Mosul.

“The campaign aims to restore security and stability to western Mosul,” he told Anadolu Agency.

Last December, officials in Baghdad declared that Daesh's military presence in Iraq had been all but dismantled over operations backed by the U.S.-led International Alliance. However, from time to time, Iraqi officials announce operations against Daesh-affiliated "sleeper cells" in certain parts of the country.
