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.
