Iraqi army recaptures multiple villages in Diyala province

Published September 30th, 2014 - 06:18 GMT

Soldiers of the Iraqi army and volunteer troops have recaptured over a dozen villages by pushing back the IS militants in the east.

On Monday, the soldiers launched mop-up operations in the province of Diyala and managed to drive the terrorists out of 16 villages there.

The army also diffused explosive devices planted by the following clashes which killed more than 100 of them.

According to reports, the soldiers captured two dozen vehicles from the IS.

The IS terrorists currently control parts of Syria and Iraq. They have threatened all communities, including Shias, Sunnis, Kurds, Christians, Izadi Kurds and others, as they continue their atrocities in Iraq.

The terrorist group has links with Saudi intelligence and is believed to be indirectly supported by the Israeli regime.

The United States started conducting airstrikes on the IS only after US interests were threatened by the militants.
