The Iraqi Security Media Center said the police command in the town of Tal Keif arrested four memebrs of Daesh (Islamic State) who “confessed to committing crimes against innocent civilians and security members.
The center said the four were wanted for justice based on the Iraqi anti-terrorism law.
Iraq declared victory over Islamic State militants in December 2017, ending a three-year military campaign against the group to retake areas they had occupied to proclaim a self-styled “caliphate”. But the group has carried out several attacks against security and civilians since then.
Mosul was Islamic State’s capital and base of operations in Iraq. It was from its Grand Nuri Mosque thart IS founder, Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, proclaimed the group’s rule. Iraqi forces recaptured the city last July after an operation that lasted for more than eight months.
