On October 7, the Iraqi military and the Popular Mobilization Units (PMU) launched a security operation against ISIS cells in the mountains of Mal and Yran in the countryside of the northwestern city of Tal Afar, according to the PMU media wing.

“The field engineer [units] of the PMU began removing IEDs and military remnants of the ISIS criminal organization,” the PMU media wing reporter said.

A day earlier, the PMU launched a similar security operation against the remaining ISIS cells in the Susan mountain chain in the northern countryside of Tal Afar. The operation, which was backed by the Iraqi military and the Iraqi Air Force (IrAF), ended on the same day.

Tal Afar was liberated from ISIS by the Iraqi military and the PMU last year. Later, Iraqi government forces launched several security operations in the countryside of the city to secure it. However, ISIS cells are still operating freely there, likely due to the low number of security forces deployed in the newly liberated region.

    Good to see the the PMU in action.
    ISIS cells in Iraq are being degraded over time.

      Being replenished though by the US and coalition.

        The miraculous rubber ISIS. Always bounces back. I suppose that’s what happens when you’re really mista’arvim or SAS or some Blackwater derivative. It would also account for their miraculous intelligence that allows them to evade airstrikes, artillery and ground operations.

    Somebody is paying and arming these terrorists who are a proxy force for their sponsors. Probably the same people supporting them in Syria.

      Well yeah, it’s Uncle Sam’s war of terror.

    John McCain met Al Bagdadi in Syria and set up the overthrow of the Syrian Government, among his many other crimes against humanity.

  • You want to get rid of ISIS then first throw out every single American, Coalition and related person and group. Then kill their proxies. Death makes sure they don’t come back and discourages others.
    And don’t be squeamish about it – they aren’t in the least bit squeamish about killing, torturing and otherwise harming yours.

    I want to see this army destroyed.
