BAGHDAD, IRAQ (2:30 A.M.) – The Iraqi Army’s 2nd and 27th brigades of the 7th Division, backed by Hashd Al-Sha’abi, liberated the key city of Al-Baghdadi in the Al-Anbar Governorate, killing a large number of Islamic State terrorists in the process of their advance on Friday.

According to the Iraqi Ministry of Defense, their armed forces managed to break-through the Islamic State’s primary defenses at Al-Baghdadi on Friday morning, paving the way for the liberation of the city by the early afternoon.

The Iraqi Armed Forces will now shift their attention to the strategic town of Hawija near the recently liberated village of Al-Shirqat in Salehiddeen.
