At Least 19 Extremists Killed, 28 Arrested since Liberation of Mosul

ERBIL, Iraq – At least 19 extremists from the Islamic State terror organization have been killed and 28 others arrested by the Iraqi federal police since the liberation of the northern city of Mosul in July, a police official said Saturday.

Raed Shaker Jawdat, commander of Iraq’s federal police forces, said 192 explosive vests had been seized and six explosives factories discovered, while an IS training center was found inside a church in the liberated areas of the Iraqi city.

The commander pointed out that IS combatants had left thousands of tons of war projectiles, explosive devices, mines, car bombs and heavy weapons in Mosul.

Jawdat added that police engineering teams had made exceptional efforts to thoroughly clean the western part of the Iraqi city so that displaced people can return and begin the reconstruction of the liberated areas.

Meanwhile, pro-government Popular Mobilization forces reported that on Saturday they thwarted an IS attack on the border with Syria, where nine extremists were killed and four others were wounded, said a commander of those militias, Maj. Ahmed Nasrallah.
