However, it added, the terrorists were detected with the use of thermal cameras, and the Hashd al-Sha’abi forces repelled their offensive.

Earlier this month, the Hashd al-Sha’abi deployed massive forces in Diyala province near Iran's border to counter Daesh terrorists in joint operations with the Iraqi army.

The move came after Daesh terrorists attacked an important oil-rich area east of the province on the Iraqi-Iranian border.

Several members of the popular forces were killed and wounded in the terrorist attack on the city of Diyala.
