Mosul Anti-ISIS RaidsDownload
Licensed to London News Pictures. 13/02/2017. Mosul, Iraq. An officer of the Iraqi National Security Service spray paints the name of his agency on the wall of a home in east Mosul to show they have investigated the property. The house was home to an ISIS fighter and his family from Tikrit who fled the area leaving behind two victim operated explosive devices.
The Jihaz Al-Amin Al-Watani, roughly translated as the National Security Service or NSS, are a secretive Iraqi agency that works under the responsibility of the Ministry of Interior. Since the liberation of eastern Mosul in January 2017 the NSS have been actively hunting down ISIS members who stayed behind to continue terrorism as part of sleeper cells and residents who worked with the group during its two year occupation. Recruiting from across the country agency is responsible for internal security inside Iraq and has a broad remit to investigate and arrest everything from terrorists and foreign spies to financial criminals and drug traffickers.
