The Iraqi Army’s 7th Division – backed by the Popular Mobilization Forces (PMF) – liberated the last remaining villages between the cities of Al-Hit and Al-Baghdadi on Monday, resulting in the end of the Islamic State of Iraq and Al-Sham’s (ISIS) 18 month siege at Haditha.

According to the Iraqi Defense Ministry, the ISF’s 7th Division liberated the villages of Al-Bustamiyah, Al-Dubiyah, Al-Khatarum, and Al-Washaniyah on Monday, killing several ISIS terrorists in the process.

In addition to the liberation of the aforementioned villages, the Iraqi Army’s 7th Division and Popular Mobilization Forces also seized Camp Fedayeen near the large desert-city of Al-Baghdadi in the Al-‘Anbar Governorate.

All of the villages between Al-Hit and Al-Baghdadi are now under the Iraqi government’s control, which means they are able to travel safely to the desert-city of Haditha.

As a result of their success on Monday, the Iraqi Army is now 115 km east of the Syrian border-crossing.

This is a Civilized Place for Public Discussion

Please treat this discussion with the same respect you would a public park. We, too, are a shared community resource — a place to share skills, knowledge and interests through ongoing conversation.

These are not hard and fast rules, merely guidelines to aid the human judgment of our community and keep this a clean and well-lighted place for civilized public discourse.

Improve the Discussion

Help us make this a great place for discussion by always working to improve the discussion in some way, however small. If you are not sure your post adds to the conversation, think over what you want to say and try again later.

The topics discussed here matter to us, and we want you to act as if they matter to you, too. Be respectful of the topics and the people discussing them, even if you disagree with some of what is being said.

Be Agreeable, Even When You Disagree

You may wish to respond to something by disagreeing with it. That’s fine. But remember to criticize ideas, not people. Please avoid:

  • Name-calling
  • Ad hominem attacks
  • Responding to a post’s tone instead of its actual content
  • Knee-jerk contradiction

Instead, provide reasoned counter-arguments that improve the conversation.
