According to Mawazin News, the PMU said in a statement that the forces of its 41st brigade were engaged in clashes with the Daesh terrorists in Tal al-Dhahab al-Yathrib area in Saladdin Governorate, north of Baghdad.
The terrorists were forced to retreat after a counterattack by the PMU, it added.
In late 2017, Baghdad declared there was no longer any Daesh presence 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.
