Iraqi Forces capture downtown Ramadi

The Iraqi Army – in coordination with their popular committees and the Al-‘Anbari tribesmen – have seized the last site controlled by the Islamic State of Iraq and Al-Sham (ISIS) inside Al-Ramadi’s downtown area after a day filled with intense firefights.

Accoridng to several battlefield reports coming out of Al-Ramadi, the Iraqi Army and their allies imposed full control over the government compounds inside this provincial capital of the Al-‘Anbar Governorate, killing over 30 terrorists from ISIS in the process.

As a result of this advance, the ISIS terrorists were forced to frantically retreat towards the eastern sector of the provincial capital, where they are currently making their final stand against the Iraqi Army and their allies.


While the city has not fallen, the Iraqi Armed Forces are on the verge of taking full control over it after they seized the government compounds and the Al-Ramadi National Hospital; these aforementioned sites have been under ISIS’ control for several months before the massive battle for its liberation began.


Should ISIS finally withdraw from Al-Ramadi’s parameters, the Iraqi Armed Forces will have dealt the terrorist group its largest defeat since capturing the imperative city of Tikrit during their massive offensive in the Salahiddeen Governorate last year.
