A new report from the U.N. Security Council accuses the Islamic State group of planning new attacks on Iraqi security forces and civilian infrastructure in response to the recent military victory in the war-torn country.
The report by the U-N.
envoy for Iraq, Richard Falk, says the IS group is still planning and implementing attacks, and is planning to launch attacks in the country’s northern provinces, such as Mosul, according to The Associated Press.
“It is clear from the recent developments in Iraq that the IS-K is determined to carry out further attacks in order to disrupt the stabilization efforts, increase tensions, and to increase instability in Iraq,” Falk said.
He added that the group is now planning new assaults in areas such as Fallujah, which is controlled by Iraqi forces.
The Iraqi government has called the report an attempt to discredit the security forces.
Iraqi officials have not confirmed the authenticity of the report.
The U.K.-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights, which monitors the war in Syria, also said in a statement that the U,S.
and the European Union are conducting military operations against IS, with U.R.A. and SDF forces participating in operations in Mosul.
The Syrian Observatory said in April that IS militants had moved into a nearby town, the al-Tajammu district.
IS is believed to be hiding in the al-‘Abbasiyah district, near the border with Turkey, and the area is now under IS control, the Observatory said.
