Final push to defeat Daesh, and bring back controlled towns
(MENAFN)An Iraqi commander said that Iraqi forces moved from the north of the Euphrates Valley to the desert on Saturday, in order to exterminate fugitive Daesh terrorists.
Athough Daesh has been defeated in so many towns it once held, Prime Minister Haider Al Abadi affirmed that he will not announce victory until the extremists are completely exterminated and driven away from the western desert bordering Syria.
Troops and paramilitaries had settled down in the desert from the east and north on Thursday in an effort to eliminate Daesh and bring a final defeat to the terrorists.
One of the operation's two commanders said that the troops pushed north from Al Qaim and Rawa, on Saturday; and two Euphrates Valley towns were retaken from Daesh earlier this month, in a movement to bring back towns of Iraq and Syria.
