ISIS attacks thwarted in Ramadi
A four-member "Islamic State of Iraq and Syria" (ISIS) cell planning attacks on government institutions and civilian areas in Ramadi has been dismantled, the Anbar Operations Command said Tuesday (September 18th).
"A force from the army’s intelligence units and Counter-Terrorism Service carried out a special operation that lasted for more than 12 hours and led to the arrest of four ISIS terrorists in three separate areas of central and eastern Ramadi," commander Maj. Gen. Mahmoud al-Falahi told Diyaruna.
The detained formed a cell that was planning attacks on civilian positions and government institutions using improvised explosive devices (IEDs) that were found in their possession, he said.
The four have been transferred to a security detention facility for questioning, al-Falahi said.
