Rasa - In a statement on Wednesday night, Iraq's Hashd al-Sha'abi said that its intelligence forces in collaboration with the special forces, managed to detect and arrest a six-member terrorist team in Mosul during a pre-emptive operation.
A senior commander of Hashd al-Sha'abi had warned in May that the ISIL terrorist group had been reinvigorated and activated again in a number of provinces in Iraq.
“The Americans and the ISIL terrorists are repeating the same scenario they played during the collapse of Mosul in 2014, in Babel, Salahuddin and Diyali provinces and they are attempting to distort security and stir instability in those regions,” Qasim al-Ma’amouri, the commander of Hashd al-Shaabi’s Division 26, was quoted by al-Ma’aloumeh as saying.
“We have intelligence showing that the terrorist group has resumed its activities in several Iraqi provinces, including Babel, with the US help,” he added.
Al-Ma’amouri said that the ISIL members have again infiltrated Jorf al-Nasr and Northern Babel.
