Iraqi security forces have cleared more areas from Takfiri ISIL terrorists in the western province of al-Anbar.

Military authorities said the army launched a major operation in the district of Karma in the eastern city of Fallujah in Anbar province on Wednesday and flushed out the terrorists from three areas.

The army also managed to break a siege by the ISIL militants on hundreds of soldiers in eastern Ramadi, the capital of Anbar governorate, security sources added.

“Iraqi forces were able to liberate overnight as many as 300 troops who had been surrounded by ISIL terrorists in the city of Ramadi, located 110 kilometers West of Baghdad,” a military source said.

The ISIL cult entered Iraq in mid-June and has tried to get its hands on large resources in the country ever since. The extremist group managed to take control of oil refineries, and, for a brief period, the country’s largest dam in Mosul.

Anbar Province has been a major stronghold of the ISIL operatives and continues to be largely controlled by the terror group. The province is the largest governorate in Iraq and shares a border with Jordan, war-ravaged Syria and Saudi Arabia.

In recent weeks, the ISIL militants have attacked several cities in Anbar, bringing them closer to Iraq’s capital.

The Takfiri ISIL militants have seized large swathes of Iraq and Syria. They have carried out horrific acts of violence in the two countries, including public decapitations and crucifixions against all Iraqi communities such as Shias, Sunnis, Kurds, Christians and Izadi Kurds.
