(IraqiNews.com) Nineveh – A security source in Nineveh province said on Thursday that the Anti-Terrorism Command carried out a military operation against ISIS at Qayyarah in Mosul, indicating that the ISIS members in the area have surrendered themselves before the security forces.

Revealing in details the source said, “A special force belonging to the Anti-Terrorism Directorate (Golden Division), based on accurate intelligence information, carried out a covert operation at the order of the Prime Minister at Qayyarah in Mosul, where a number of prominent ISIS leaders were present.”

“The force was surprised that the ISIS members surrendered themselves without much resistance, fearing the repetition of what happened to them in Fallujah,” the source added.

It is worth mentioning here that the Iraqi Defense Minister Khaled al-Obeidi announced last week about the launch of a military operation with an aim to liberate the area.
