Anbar ( Islamic State has detained fifteen youth in western Anbar over cooperation with security services, a source was quoted saying.

Speaking to Alghad Press on Friday, the source said, “IS detained fifteen youth from cybercafes in Qaim after inspecting their cellphones.”

“IS accused the youth of cooperation with security troops,” the source said, adding that the detainees were taken to unknown destination.

Earlier on the day, the War Media Cell said the Iraqi military command urged residents in Qaim to be prepared for imminent operations to retake their region from militants. On Thursday, the Iraqi army’s elite Counter-Terrorism Service distributed flyers in Qaim urging Islamic State militants to surrender better than having the same destiny of other militants in liberated regions. It also urged people to stay away from the militants in order not to be used as human shields, and to remember their hideouts so troops could follow them after the town is liberated.

Iraqi army announced the total recapture of Annah, hours after recapturing neighboring Rayhana area, in September. Troops also liberated Akashat region, between Rutba town, on borders with Jordan, and Qaim, on borders with Syria.

Anbar’s western towns of Qaim and Rawa have been held by the extremist group since 2014, when it occupied one third of Iraq to proclaim a self-styled Islamic “Caliphate”. Iraqi troops were able to return life back to normal in the biggest cities of Anbar including Fallujah, Ramadi and others after recapturing them in 2015 and 2016.

  1. I expect these young heroes to be murdered by the IS infidels. They participated in legitimate Jihad against IS Khārijites.

    • You are right, these IS Pigs are so paranoid, when they kidnap these young men, most are murdered.

      Hey IS Pigs, you have informers in you ranks, giving up information on you.
      Better kill off the IS Pigs in your ranks.

  2. Wow. That’s a lot of young heroes. I expect the IS apostates to murder them. They will be true martyrs.

  3. The residents of these towns need to help kill these IS Pigs and not wait to be kidnapped and killed.
    Better to fight these IS Pigs and die, then wait for these IS Pigs to come and get you and kill you.

    These are your towns not these IS Pigs.
    The sooner these IS Pigs are gone the sooner you can set up a democracy.
