Shafaq News/ The Iraqi Prime Minister Mustafa Al-Kadhimi arrived today in the western regions of Al-Anbar Governorate to supervise the process of the "Solid Will" operation.
A security source told Shafaq News Agency that Al-Kadhimi discussed with the Border Operations Command, Special Forces, and Rapid Response the plans and actions of the operation.
On Saturday, the Joint Operations Command launched the second stage of Operation "Solid Will" against ISIS in western Iraq.
The Security Media Cell said, "Under the supervision of the Joint Operations Command, the Solid Will Operation was launched this morning, with the participation of the commands of the Al-Anbar, Al-Jazeera, and Karbala operations, in addition to forces from the Border Guard Command and the Popular Mobilization.
"The army and the air force support this operation." The Cell added.
The Special Forces, the Counter-Terrorism Service, and the Rapid Response Division lead helicopter operations, including ambushes in the desert.
This operation is followed by others in Diyala, Samarra, Saladin, and the southern Kirkuk to "pursue ISIS terrorist elements and eliminate terrorism."
Last March, the joint security forces carried out a large-scale operation (Solid Will) in the governorates of Nineveh, Saladin, and Al-Anbar against ISIS remnants.
In 2017, Iraq declared final victory over ISIS after Iraqi forces drove its last remnants from the country; the militant group had captured about a third of Iraq's territory.
The war has had a devastating impact on the areas previously controlled by the militants. About 3.2 million people remain displaced.
