Iraqi Counter Terrorism Service Kill 206 IS Militants in 2020

The Iraqi Counter-Terrorism Service (CTS) has said its commando forces killed a total of 206 Islamic State (IS) militants and captured 292 others across the country so far in 2020. The CTS's cyber-security teams also managed to "track down 26,280 accounts of terrorist gangs on social media platforms and instant messaging sites", the anti terrorism force statement said. 

With support from Iraqi and international coalition aircraft, the CTS's special operations tactical units carried out 253 operations against the extremist group during the past period of the year, a news agency quoted the Service as saying in a statement on Saturday. "The CTS's operations aim to create a safe and stable environment for the life of the Iraqi people by continuing operations to track down and attack terrorist cells and their electronic platforms that spread hatred and extremism among people," the statement added. 

CTS activities during the year were part of efforts to eliminate the IS militants from Iraq who intensified their attacks on security forces and civilians in the previously IS-controlled Sunni provinces, resulting in massacre and injuring of dozens of people. The security situation in Iraq has been improving since the Iraqi security forces fully defeated the IS militants across the country late in 2017.
