The Iraqi Security forces announced on Thursday night that nine leaders of the ISIS terrorist group had been killed in the north of the country.

Iran PressMiddle East: In recent weeks, attacks by ISIS elements have increased in the eastern and northern parts of Iraq.

Many Iraqi people and groups attribute the increase in ISIS movements in Iraq to the US plan to continue its occupying presence in Iraq.

The Iraqi security forces reported that the nine ISIS leaders were killed during an operation by Iraqi forces in the northern province of Ninawa.

On the other hand, the forces of the 31st Brigade of the Iraqi People's Mobilization Organization, Hashd al-Shabi also killed an ISIS terrorist in the Baiji area in Salah al-Din province.

Hours ago, an ISIS member was killed and eight others were arrested during an attack by Iraqi forces on an ISIS terrorist base in the northern Iraqi province of Kirkuk.

Despite the defeat of the ISIS terrorist group in Iraq, a number of members of this terrorist group are still present in different parts of the country and carry out terrorist acts in a scattered manner.

In 2014, the ISIS terrorist group, with the financial and military support of the United States and its Western and Arab allies, including Saudi Arabia, invaded Iraq, occupying large parts of the northern and western parts of the country and committing countless crimes. Iraq subsequently called on Iran to help Baghdad fight these terrorists. 219
