Iraqi security forces foiled an infiltration attempt by militants of the so-called ‘Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant’ (ISIL) south of the Haditha district in the Anbar province, a security source reported.

“Iraqi forces killed five ISIL suicide bombers who tried to enter into Al-Haqlaniyya town, south of Haditha,” he said.

Leadership of Iraqi volunteer forces reported earlier about lifting the ISIL siege on the Haditha district, as the Iraqi army – in cooperation with tribesmen – managed to liberate Al-Mashatel and Mat-hanah areas located in the environs of the Hit district, west of Ramadi, following fierce battles against ISIL terrorists.

The clashes left a number of ISIL gunmen killed and wounded.

In a similar development, the Popular Mobilization Forces (PMF) foiled a major attack by ISIL gangs on the Mak-hool mountains, which lasted for 10 hours.

Meanwhile, 30 ISIL terrorists were killed in Anbar, during the liberation of Al-Khalidiyya island.

“Liberating Al-Khalidiyya in the northern axis left 30 terrorists killed and 11 IEDs dismantled by our ground and aerial forces, as well as the coalition airstrikes and artillery fire,” a statement the Iraqi Central Command.

“In the eastern axis, the engineering units managed to clear an IED warehouse and to dismantle a car bomb and 20 C4 barrels in the Al-Qaraya Al-Asriyya town (modern village),” it added.

More than 60 IEDs were also dismantled.

Earlier on Saturday, the Al-Anbar operation command room said that a military operation has been launched to liberate Albu-Abid area east of Ramadi in central Anbar.
