The security forces reinforced its presence in the axes of Heet, and prepared to launch a storming operation in order to recapture the district from ISIS terrorist gangs.
On Monday, the leadership of al-Hashed al Shaabi in Anbar Province declares that 17 ISIS terrorists were killed when the Iraqi security forces cleansed the areas of al-Maamra and al-Hawda in Heet District in western Ramadi.
“The security forces carried out a wide-scale military operation and managed to cleanse al-Maamra and al-Hawda areas in the southern axis of Heet District after fierce battles with ISIS, and the operation resulted in the killing of 17 ISIS militants,” said the officer in al-Hashed al-Shaabi in Haditha district Aycer Obeidi said in a statement.
He also said that the security forces reinforced its presence in the axes of Heet, and prepared to launch a storming operation in order to recapture the district from ISIS terrorist gangs.
Since June 2014, Iraq has been observing ISIS terrorist activities. The US-led coalition started its operations allegedly hitting ISIS, although many believes ISIS is a creation of the west.
However, the 66-member coalition has been failing to control ISIS terrorism, when a concerted push by Iraqi forces are dealing terrorists and forcing it out of the central city of Ramadi, the capital of the western Anbar Province.
