The Iraqi Popular Mobilization Units (PMU) in cooperation with the Iraqi army 59th brigade of the sixth division are now clashing with ISIS cells in the northern Baghdad district of Tarmiya.
As a result of the ambush, one of the prominent ISIS leaders in the region was reportedly killed.
The first footage from the spot was shared by the Sabereen News.
The joint operation may be a response to the recent terrorist attack in northern Baghdad. On July 31, a bomb blast killed at least two persons and injured nine others. The IED exploded near a popular market in Tarmiya district.
Meanwhile, ISIS terrorists do not stop their attacks in various regions.
On August 9, ISIS militants attacked a checkpoint of the Iraqi military in the town of Makhmour in Erbil governorate.
The attack was reportedly prevented, and Iraqi military managed to explode the motorcycle before it reached to the checkpoint situated not far from the town center.
ISIS still poses a threat to the security of Iraq as sleeper cells remain numerous in the country.
