Leader of the ISIS terrorist group Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi has ordered his men to arrest at least 20 field commanders in Northern Salahuddin on charges of fleeing from the battlefield and continued failures in clashes with Iraqi government forces, a commander of the Iraqi volunteer forces of Hashed al-Shaabi said.

"Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi has issued a decree for the arrest of at least 20 local commanders of the Takfiri group in al-Sharqat and al-Qayara on charges of fleeing the battlefield and negligence in leading their forces in the battlefronts," Jabar al-Ma'amouri said.

"After rapid advances of the Iraqi soldiers and popular forces in Salahuddin in the recent days, the ISIL terrorists and their families have started fleeing al-Sharqat and al-Qayara regions to Mosul to find safer shelters there," the commander further added.

In relevant developments in the province on Sunday, Iraq's joint military forces continued their advances in Salahuddin province by taking back strategic regions near the city of al-Sharqat.

The Iraqi forces captured al-Ramazaniat region which paved their way to get very close to the village of al-Aiseh on the outskirts of al-Sharqat in the Northern part of Salahuddin province.

"The Iraqi joint forces are now very close to al-Aiseh village as the ISIS terrorists are evacuating their families from the village which is one  of the strategic strongholds of the Takfiri terrorists," the Iraqi media quoted an unnamed security source as saying.

The military operations to liberate the outskirts of Sharqat in Salahuddin province and al-Qayara region in the Southern part of Mosul kicked off on June 18, FNA reported.
