In late 2017, Baghdad declared victory over Daesh in the country.

However, the terrorist group still maintains a presence in rural areas of Anbar, Diyala, Kirkuk, Saladin, and Mosul.

The Iraqi army and PMU forces continue to carry out frequent operations against the group in various parts of the country.
