Seven Daesh terrorists have been arrested within the last 24 hours in the city of Mosul, regional capital of Iraq’s northern Nineveh province, a local police source said Friday.
Axar.az reports citing Anadolu Agency.
Nineveh Police Chief Hamad al-Jabouri told Anadolu Agency that arrests had been based on an intelligence tipoff.
The Daesh members, he said, had been found and arrested in Mosul’s Tal al-Roman, Al-Mamoun and Al-Zenjili districts.
Al-Jabouri went on to assert that army engineering units had also successfully defused an improvised explosive device -- presumably planted by Daesh -- near Mosul’s western Al-Matahen district.
Last year, officials in Baghdad declared that Daesh's military presence in the country had been all but destroyed.
The army, however, still carries out frequent mopping-up operations with a view to eradicating the lingering terrorist presence.
