The commander of the Popular Mobilization Unit in Diyala province of Iraq announced the launching of operations against the remnants of the ISIL terrorist group in the province and areas adjacent to Iran during which PMF found the areas used by ISIL forces as the group’s hideouts in northern Diyala.

Popular forces will continue to pursue the remnants of ISIL terrorists, the commander said.
