Baghdad (IraqiNews.com) – The Iraqi Defense Ministry announced on Saturday that a camp of the Islamic State terrorist group was destroyed in Anbar province.
The camp was used by Islamic State militants for the purposes of training and storing ammunition and explosive charges, Ayn Al Iraq news website quoted the ministry as saying in a press statement.
The army troops also destroyed several terrorist hotbeds and seized a large cache of ammunition there, the statement read.
Iraq declared the collapse of Islamic State’s territorial influence in Iraq in November 2017 with the recapture of Rawa, a city on Anbar’s western borders with Syria, which was the group’s last bastion in Iraq.
Despite the group’s crushing defeat at its main havens across Iraq, Islamic State continues to launch sporadic attacks against troops with security reports warning that the militant group still poses a threat against stability in the country.
