Special forces spokesman Sabah al-Numan said the high number of Daesh casualties was the outcome of a strategic intelligence and security plan devised and carried out by Iraqi Counter-Terrorism Services (CTS).
He said more than 300 operations were implemented as part of the plan, during which a large number of Daesh members, including senior members of the terrorist group, were killed.
According to the spokesman, the plan helped to thwart many terrorist plots hatched by Daesh.
Operations to track down and kill members of Daesh will continue, al-Numan underlined.
In late 2017, Baghdad declared victory over Daesh in Iraq.
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.
