The Iraqi government and a powerful group of Shia fighters have declared victory over the the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant group in the key Iraqi province of Diyala.

The offensive was led by the Badr Brigade, a Shia group backing the Iraqi army.

The group held a victory rally on Monday and said it was ready to move north into ISIL strongholds.

She noted that Hadi Al Amri, the brigade’s leader and a former tansport minister, said his group is working with tribes to take back the provinces of Anbar and Mosul from ISIL.

Shia fighters and government forces have also been accused of committing war crimes in Diyala province, according to Al Jazeera’s correspondent.
