EghtesadOnline: A potential terrorist attack on the Iraqi city of Samarra was foiled on Friday following the arrest of four terrorists by the Popular Mobilization Forces.
The four arrested terrorists who are Arab citizens of some regional countries, were arrested near Samarra, about 110 kilometers north of capital Baghdad, the Shia group Jundulemam, an affiliate of the Popular Mobilization Forces said in its statement.
According to IRNA, the terrorists intended to enter the city of Samarra under cover and launch their terrorist operation.
The statement did not mention the nationality of the arrested terrorists.
But most of foreign terrorists in Iraq who tend to be affiliated with the Daesh terrorist group are Saudi citizens.
Baghdad has repeatedly asked the Saudi government to stop infiltration of terrorists from Saudi Arabia to Iraq.
Many Saudi citizens are behind bars in Iraq for participating in terrorist activities in the country.
