On Saturday, the Iraqi secret service announced that it had occupied the main Islamic State explosives depot in the Al-Anbar.

The intelligence service said in a statement to Sputnik Arabic that the materials were seized from the warehouse and that it was the main storage site for ammunition and explosives for the terrorist organization between the Heet and Kbisa areas.

According to the agency, ISIS fighters intended to use the warehouse to carry out terrorist operations in the areas of Heet, Fallujah and Ramadi within the Anbar government.

In addition, they revealed that what was found inside the warehouse included 20 magnetic devices and 10 explosive zones, along with a wide variety of explosives, such as grenades.

The secret service confirmed that the aforementioned materials have been removed and will be handed over to the competent authorities.

The Iraqi intelligence agency said the operation was a success due to their accurate information and the great effort made.
