TEHRAN (IQNA) – Iraqi Prime Minister Mustafa al-Kadhimi said the country’s armed forces have managed to kill the second highest ranking member of the terrorist group.

 

He did not name the terrorist killed by Iraqi forces.

Addressing an international counter-terrorism conference, the premier hailed the role of Iraq’s Counter-Terrorism Service in defeating Daesh, RT Arabic reported.

He said terrorism has turned into a global challenge and source of concern for all, adding that Iraq has played a major part in countering this threat.

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.
