Iraq’s latest gains over ISIL herald more
The secretary general of Iraq’s Asaib Ahl al-Haq volunteer forces says the recent army victories against the ISIL in the northern province of Salahuddin herald the liberation of more neighboring areas from the Takfiri terrorists, Press TV reports.
“After breaking the siege of Baiji refinery, we began pushing for the liberation of regions which lay north of Tikrit and west of Salahuddin province,” Qais al-Khazali told Press TV on Thursday, adding, “Our next operation will be in the northeast of Anbar.”
The commander hailed the remarkable contributions of the volunteer forces, also known as Popular Mobilization Units, to the anti-ISIL operations.
“We have said it before and I repeat that victory is inevitable if the resistance forces of the Popular Mobilization Units take part in the fighting, especially with support of the Iraqi army and air force,” he went on to say.
