Nour al-Maliki also commended security forces who achieved a rare victory over insurgents by ending the siege of a town. Nouri al-Maliki made the comments during an unannounced visit to the northern community of Amirli, where he was greeted with hugs. A day earlier, Iraqi forces backed by Iran-allied Shia militias and U.S. airstrikes broke a two-month siege of the town.

“All Iraq will be a grave for those infidels, and we will send all the [ISIS] gang to death,” he added.
