Iraq Army Victory Hailed

A foreign ministry official has hailed a recent victory by the Iraqi army against Islamic State (IS) militants, saying the triumph proves that Iraq and Syria can contain the terrorist group on their own. The Iraqi military, supported by volunteer forces, succeeded in mopping up the last of IS militants in the town of Jurf al-Sakhar near the capital Baghdad on Monday. Deputy Foreign Minister for Arab and African Affairs Hossein Amir-Abdollahian congratulated the Iraqi nation, government, and armed forces on the victory, Press TV reported.  “The mop-up operation in Jurf al-Sakhar by the Iraqi armed and volunteer forces and without foreign intervention can serve as the best example for freeing and clearing areas in Iraq and Syria of Takfiri terrorists,” the diplomat said.
