ISIS launched two new attacks in Iraq, according to reports early on Monday. The first attack targeted checkpoints of the tribal crowd and its security forces in Diyala Governorate, north of the Iraqi capital, Baghdad, and resulted in deaths and injuries. ISIS also launched another attack in Jurf al-Sakhar, south of Baghdad, targeting pro-Iranian militias.

The terrorist organization launched an attack in Diyala on Sunday, which resulted in deaths and injuries, as the Iraqi authorities announced, Sunday. The designated Iraqi Prime Minister, Mustafa Al-Kazemi, has vowed to intensify the campaign against ISIS after the attacks. In recent weeks, attacks by suspected ISIS militants have increased, particularly in the rugged area between Kirkuk, Salah al-Din and Diyala provinces, known as the “Triangle of Death.”

Last month, the Security Media Cell in Iraq announced that Iraqi forces had launched airstrikes on areas sheltering members of the terrorist organization in Salah al-Din Governorate. In late 2017, Iraq declared victory over ISIS after it managed to recover the vast majority of the land that the terrorist organization seized years ago. The organization still keeps sleeper cells in large areas of Iraq, and launches attacks between varying periods.
