BAGHDAD (AA) - At least 11 Daesh terrorists were captured by Iraqi forces on Wednesday while trying to infiltrate into Iraq’s northern Nineveh province, according to a local security source.

“The 11 gunmen fled Iraq’s northeastern Tuz Khurmatu district, where large-scale military operations remain underway,” Federal Police officer Hasan al-Ghazali told Anadolu Agency.

According to al-Ghazali, a joint police/army force captured the gunmen on Wednesday as they tried to enter Nineveh through the Al-Shoura district roughly 45 kilometers south of Mosul.

The Daesh presence has recently been purged from Iraq -- by Iraqi forces and a U.S.-led military coalition -- after the terrorist group overran much of the country in 2014.

Iraqi officials, however, continue to warn of Daesh “sleeper cells” that they say remain in the country.
