Iraqi security forces have disbanded a terrorist group in the southern part of the country’s oil-rich northern province of Kirkuk as government troops, backed by allied fighters from Popular Mobilization Units, are trying to purge the war-ravaged Arab country of the remnants of the Daesh Takfiri terrorist group.

Commander of the Federal Police Forces Lieutenant General Raed Shaker Jawdat told Arabic-language al-Ghad Press news agency that his forces arrested the terrorists on charges of planting explosive devices in the Arab Koi area of the province.

He added that the arrested Takfiris have been handed over to relevant bodies to undergo interrogation. Daesh militants blow up a crude oil pipeline in Kirkuk.
