The operations resulted in dismantling and detonation of several explosive devices, and guesthouse, utilized as a shelter by the terrorists, was destroyed. The source added that the guesthouse contained logistical materials, military clothes, light equipment and medical supplies.
Areas north of Al-Miqdadiya, northeast of Diyala, were considered to be one of the strongholds of armed organizations over the past years due to its geographical nature and dense groves, many of which are converted into sanctuaries and security nests for ISIS operatives.
