The Daesh terrorist group was defeated in Iraq and it is now necessary to eradicate the terrorist ideology, Iraqi Prime Minister Haider Abadi said, according to the Al Sumaria broadcaster.

“Terrorism has been defeated from a military point of view, now we must eradicate its ideas and methods,” Iraqi Prime Minister Haider Abadi told the Al Sumaria broadcaster.

The prime minister pointed out that the country needed a new environment.

“That is not an environment of war, that is an environment of peace and reconstruction,” Abadi stated.

​Daesh* seized huge territories in northern Iraq in June 2014 after a large-scale offensive. In 2017, the government forces and pro-government units managed to retake the lost territories, including the second biggest Iraqi city of Mosul.

Even though Iraqi Prime Minister Haider al-Abadi hailed the country’s army following its victory over Daesh in December 2017, the terrorist group currently continues to conduct attacks on selected targets and has switched to guerrilla warfare tactics.
