The Iraqi forces killed at least 21 terrorists in the battles and raised the Iraqi flag on a building in the village.
Today, according to a provincial security source, Iraqi security forces launched a major offensive to liberate nearby towns of Anbar province and already they have freed a village from ISIS terrorists.
Chinese media Xinhua reported that the Iraqi security forces and allied Sunni tribal militias backed by Iraqi warplanes, engaged in heavy clashes with ISIS terrorist and drove them out from the village of al-Mohammadi in southeast of the IS-held town of Hit. The town is some 160 km northwest of the Iraqi capital of Baghdad.
The source told the Xinhua that the Iraqi forces killed at least 21 terrorists in the battles and raised the Iraqi flag on a building in the village.
It is also reported that the US-led coalition backed Sunni tribal militia, Iraqi troops and warplanes have advanced during the day from Ain al-Asad military airbase towards Hit and Kubaisa.
However, ISIS has lost most of its assets in Syrian war. If it loses oilfield and oil refineries from the largest Iraqi city of Mosul, many analyst believe that ISIS will not survive for long in Iraq as well without their sources of black money.
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.
The 66-member US-led coalition has been failing to control ISIS terrorism, when a concerted push by Iraqi forces are dealing terrorists and forcing it out from the key cities of Iraq.
