End of PMU mission in Anbar

Fighters from Iraq's Popular Mobilization Units (PMU), better known as Hashd al-Sha'abi, have finished their security operation in Anbar province, the PMU announced Sunday in a statement.

It also said the PMU forces managed to secure four regions in the province, and accomplished all the objectives of their mission by destroying several Daesh hideouts and seizing their arms.

Iraq declared victory over Daesh in December 2017 after a three-year counter-terrorism military campaign.

The terror outfit's remnants, though, keep staging sporadic attacks across Iraq, attempting to regroup and unleash a new era of violence.
