Four PMF members injured in an explosion in Salah Al-Din Governorate
The Popular Mobilization Authority confirms that four PMF members were injured when an explosive device went off in Salah Al-Din Governorate.
The Iraqi Popular Mobilization Authority announced on Sunday the injury of four of its members in an explosion in Salah Al-Din Governorate.
In an official statement, the Authority confirmed that four members of the Popular Mobilization Forces (PMF) were injured when an explosive device blasted in Salah Al-Din Governorate.
It added that the four members belong to the 51st Brigade of the Salah Operations Command in the PMF and were on a large-scale security mission in the Governorate when a roadside bomb targeted their vehicle.
Earlier today, the Shafaq news agency reported that "a joint force from the PMF's 31st and 51st brigade, the anti-narcotics department, and a force from the Iraqi army carried out a large-scale campaign in Saladin's Baiji."
"The operation uncovered a network of tunnels used by ISIS militants as hideouts and a number of explosive devices," the news agency confirmed.
A few days ago, the PMF surrounded a group of ISIS terrorists in a 16-kilometer-long tunnel in the Rawa desert in Anbar Governorate.
In late August, a PMF member was martyred and three others were wounded when an explosive device blasted north of the Iraqi capital, Baghdad.
It is noteworthy that Major General Tahsin Al-Khafaji, spokesperson for the Joint Operations Command, noted in late September that the number of ISIS terrorists in Iraq has become very few, explaining that the number is less than 1,000, most of whom are local residents.
In late March, the Iraqi army launched a military operation to pursue ISIS elements in the governorates of Nineveh, Salah Al-Din, and Al-Anbar, with the support of warplanes and operations command, and the participation of the PMF.
