BEIRUT, LEBANON (5:05 P.M.) – The Iraqi Armed Forces have liberated the Islamic State (ISIS) stronghold of Al-Rumanah, today, after a short battle in the western countryside of the Al-Anbar Governorate.

Led by the army and Hashd Al-Sha’abi (Popular Mobilization Units), the Iraqi Armed Forces were able to overpower the Islamic State terrorists Al-Rumanah this afternoon, seizing the imperative bridge prior to liberating the entire town.

With Al-Rumanah liberated, the Iraqi Armed Forces will shift their attention to the last Islamic State stronghold, Al-Rawa, which is located east of Al-Qa’im.

Once Al-Rawa is freed from the terrorist group, the integral Baghdad Highway will be cleared for the first time since the Islamic State began their operations in Iraq.
