Iraqi popular units destroy Daesh arsenal

Baghdad, Feb 4 (Prensa Latina) The Popular Mobilization Units (Al-Hashad Al-Shabi), popular forces of Iraq, located and destroyed a weapons stockpile of the Islamic State (Daesh) in the west of the country, sources of the organization reported today.

A senior commander confirmed to Al-Maluma website on Saturday that the military group discovered in Al-Anbar province several terrorist hideouts, one of them containing large quantities of weapons.

The source said that the arsenal was located in the deserts of the Rawa region, near the Syrian border, and inside one of them several weapons and bomb-making materials were found.

The operation, which is still ongoing, the informant stressed, was carried out based on security and intelligence reports and reports from residents of the region about suspected terrorist movements.

Al-Hashad Al-Shabi forces and the Iraqi Army are seriously engaged in uncovering and destroying Daesh hideouts in Al-Anbar, a bastion of sleeping cells of the takfiri doctrine promulgated by ISIS and other extremist groups, where one Muslim accuses another as an apostate, a traitor to his religion and is sentenced to capital punishment .

Despite the end of Daesh’s alleged caliphate, with the liberation of the northern city of Mosul in June 2017, some were able to escape and hide in desert areas, especially in western Nineveh province (north), near the Syrian border, the Al-Anbar desert, border areas and mountainous areas of Salah al-Din and Diyala (east).

Iraqi authorities and commanders accuse the United States of aiding Daesh, in an attempt to destabilize the Arab country and justify its military presence on Iraqi soil at a time when the withdrawal of foreign troops is a popular demand.
