    DIYALA/ NINEVEH, Iraq

    Iraqi army forces dismantled four Daesh positions during a military operation in eastern Iraq, according to an Iraqi police officer on Sunday.

    “The operation was launched in response to an increasing Daesh activity in the border areas inside the Saladin province,” Capt. Habib al-Shammari told Anadolu Agency.

    The operation came after a senior police officer was killed on Saturday in a roadside bomb blast in northern Tikrit in eastern Iraq.

    Meanwhile, Iraqi forces nabbed a Daesh militant in the northern city of Mosul on Sunday.

    “The militant was detained upon an intelligence tip-off in western Mosul,” Nineveh police chief Brigadier General Hamad a-Jabouri said.

    He said the militant, who was identified as Nezar Saleh, was responsible for a series of car-bomb attacks in Mosul.

    Last December, officials in Baghdad declared that Daesh's military presence in Iraq had been all but dismantled over operations backed by the U.S.-led International Alliance.

    However, from time to time, Iraqi officials announce operations against Daesh-affiliated "sleeper cells" in certain parts of the country.

    BAGHDAD

    At least one medical officer of the Hashd al-Shaabi and one police personnel were killed on Monday in northern Iraq’s Mosul over clashes between the two sides, according to security sources.

    “Armed clashes broke out between local police [in Mosul] and the Hashd al-Shaabi forces in Mosul's Old City that led to the killing of Ibrahim al-Khazaali, an officer in-charge of medical affairs in the Sayyid al-Shuhada brigades affiliated with the Hashd al-Shaabi, and wounding two others from the same faction," an Iraqi army captain told Anadolu Agency on condition of anonymity due to restrictions to speak to media.

    The clashes also resulted in the killing of one police personnel and injuring of three other personnel, the source said.

    Security forces of the National Security Service arrived in Mosul's Old City to cope with the situation, it added.

    Meanwhile, local police lieutenant Ahmad Ismail al-Khafaji attributed the clashes to the Hashd al-Shaabi’s "attempt to gain control over the headquarters of police officers in Mosul’s old city”.

    “A force from the Hashd al-Shaabi stormed the headquarters of the seventh regiment when the police personnel were having a rest. They assaulted police personnel and threatened to kill them unless they immediately evacuate the place."

    When they rejected to evacuate the police headquarters the clashes erupted between the two sides, Hafaji added.

    There was no explanation by the Hashd al-Shaabi commanders who refrained from speaking about the incident.

    The Iraqi forces announced it regained control of Mosul from the self-proclaimed Daesh terrorist organization, in the summer of last year, following nine- month fighting.

    The Hashd al-Shaabi forces did not participate in the battles to retake the city center, however, it has entered it in the wake of the defeat of Daesh and took permanent positions there.

    The Hashd al-Shaabi fought alongside Iraqi forces against Daesh for three years, however, it faces charges of abuses against civilians, Sunnis and Kurds in the areas.

    The commanders of the Hashd al-Shaabi, for their part, deny any systematic violations.
