IS Diyala State free of Arab, foreign militants for first time since 2014
I have absolutely no idea what this means.
Diyala ( A senior security source from Diyala has said Islamic State’s so-called Diyala State is free of Arab or foreign militants for the first time since 2014.

Speaking to Baghdad Today website, the source said, “All information from the intelligence department on Islamic State cells in Diyala State indicate that no Arab or foreign fighters exist, which is the first time since 2014.”

The absence of Arab and foreign militants in Diyala, according to the source, who preferred anonymity, is due to many reasons, “many of them were killed, while others moved to other places as result of security measures by the Diyala Operations Command.”
