A senior Iranian official has hailed a recent victory by the Iraqi army against the ISIL Takfiri militants, saying the triumph proves that Iraq and Syria can contain the terrorist group on their own.

The Iraqi military, supported by volunteer forces, succeeded in mopping up the last of ISIL Takfiri militants in the town of Jurf al-Sakhar, near the capital Baghdad on Monday.

Iran's Deputy Foreign Minister for Arab and African Affairs Hossein Amir-Abdollahian congratulated the Iraqi nation, government, and armed forces on the victory.

“The mop-up operation in Jurf al-Sakhar by the Iraqi armed and volunteer forces and without foreign intervention can serve as the best example for freeing and clearing areas in Iraq and Syria of Takfiri terrorists,” the top diplomat said.

“This successful operation proved that the Iraqi government and people defend their sovereignty, independence, national unity, and territorial integrity,” he added.

The army has been fighting the terrorist group for nearly six months now.

The ISIL terrorists currently control large areas of land across Syria and Iraq. They have committed terrible atrocities in both countries, including mass executions and beheading of local residents as well as foreign nationals.
