Khanaqin operation was conducted by the PMU’s Diyala Operations Command, the engineer unit and the 4th Regiments of the 23th Brigade and the 2nd Regiments of the 23th Brigade.

“The operation resulted in securing and clearing eight areas: Ain al-Samak, Zallu, Kani Masi, Ali al-Sagheer, Baggha, Tilal Nukht Khan, Wadi Gharb, and Wadi Talab,” a source in the PMU said, according to the Military Media.

The large-scale combing operation targeted ISIS cells in Khanaqin, which have been active in the areas of al-Zur and al-Adghal [forest in Arabic].

Similar security operations are carried out in ISIS’ ex-strongholds on a regular basis. These operations are limiting the movement of ISIS remnants, preventing the terrorist group from reorganizing its members.
