According to the Iraqi security forces’ official statement, the new operation will “search the areas of Wadi Houran, Husayniyyat, al-Kara, H2, Wadi al-Hallcom, and up to the international borders.”

“The operation leaders of Anbar, Al-Jazeera, and the Popular Mobilization Forces (Hashd Al-Sha’abi) in western Al-Anbar participated in the operation, and the tribal PMF was divided into a section and with nine axes supporting the army and air force.”

They  pointed out that “this process comes to enhance security and stability in these areas, to pursue terrorist elements and to arrest those wanted.”
