The enemies had incited the terrorists that they could win and the people of Iraq were intimidated that they were not able to stand against savage terrorists and their brutalities, but today with God's attention, the people of Iraq won the war of resolve; do not doubt that they will clear the entire Iraq from the terrorists," Dr Rouhani also said.
