Iraqi forces on Saturday launched a military operation near Saudi border to clear the area from Daesh militants, according to a senior military commander.

Axar.az reports citing AA.

"The operation aims to chase Daesh remnants in the western desert and destroy their positions and hideouts," Anbar Operations Commander Maj. Gen. Mahmoud al-Falahi told Anadolu Agency.

He said tribal fighters and U.S.-led coalition warplanes were taking part in the offensive.

Daesh has been driven out by Iraqi forces, backed by U.S.-led coalition warplanes, from territory overran by the terrorist group in northern and western Iraq in 2014.
