On Tuesday afternoon, the Iraqi Defense Minister announced full liberation of Al-Ramadi after a two month long battle with the so-called “Islamic State of Iraq and Al-Sham” (ISIS) at the outskirts of this provincial capital in western Iraq.

The Iraqi Army, their popular committees, and local tribesmen were able to full liberate Al-Ramadi after they seized the final pocket of resistance at the Husayba Al-Sharqiyah District, marking the end of ISIS’ presence inside this strategic city.

With Al-Ramadi under their control, the Iraqi Armed Forces can now concentrate on the ISIS stronghold of Fallujah, which is located approximately 35km away.
