The forces of the Iraqi People's Mobilization Units thwarted the attempt of elements of the ISIS terrorist group to attack the northern province of Salah al-Din.

Iran PressMiddle East: Attacks by ISIS elements have increased in recent months 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.

According to Iran Press, Iraqi sources reported on Wednesday night that the forces of the 51st Brigade of the Iraqi PMU repelled the attack of ISIS terrorist elements on the Makhul area in Salah al-Din province and forced the terrorists to flee.

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.

The popular mobilization, which was established in 2014 with the fatwa of Ayatollah Sistani, the supreme authority of the Iraqi Shiites, has played a key role in defeating ISIS terrorism in Iraq and is now at the forefront of the fight against ISIS survivors alongside the country's security forces. 219
