baghdad - The armed forces in Iraq are starting an offensive to conquer the last Iraqi territory still in the hands of Islamic State. The army reports that pamphlets spread out above the border region with the places Rawa and al-Qaim.
'God is on our side in this last attack on IS members', according to a statement in the pamphlets spread by the Iraqi air force. 'Your security forces are on their way to free you. '
Warriors of the terrorist organization were in major parts of Iraq in 2014. The security forces later expelled the jihadists from their main bulwarks, such as their actual Iraqi capital Mosul.
