The Iraqi Army is on the move in the Al-‘Anbar Governorate after liberating several areas in the Al-Baghadi countryside on Monday.

According to the Iraqi Minister of Defense, the Iraqi Army – backed by the Popular Mobilization Forces (PMF) and local tribes – liberated the village of Al-Dawaliyah after a violent battle with the Islamic State of Iraq and Al-Sham (ISIS).

Following the liberation of Al-Dawaliyah, the Iraqi Army’s 7th Division entered the village of Al-Doulab, seizing control of the Police Station and Doulab Roundabout before sundown on Monday evening.

The Iraqi Armed Forces are now within striking distance of the ISIS stronghold of Al-Baghdadi; if captured by the government forces, then they will be within 150 km of the Syrian border-crossing at Al-Qa’im.

The Iraqi army and paramilitaries have been more successful and effective than the SAA in fighting terrorists, not sure if any analysis has been done on the reasons for the same

They just have ISIS to fight. In Syria, there’s ISIS, al-Qaeda, bunch of islamist militias, “moderates” backed by the US and a dozen of fronts… And Syria was much easier to access for shithaddists coming from everywhere…
Things are much much more complicated in Syria than in Iraq and there was nearly the double of daeshbags in Syria than there was in Iraq…
Terrain is harsher in Syria too (look at geographic terrain maps), most of Iraq is flat desert and populated areas are mostly along Tiger and Euphrat’s rivers…
