BEIRUT, LEBANON (9:20 P.M.) – The Iraqi forces scored a new advance in the Hawija countryside this week, liberating several sites from the so-called Islamic State (ISIS) terror organization.

According to the Federal Police, their forces managed to liberate the Shameet Bridge and Namleh village in the Hawija countryside, killing and wounding scores of Islamic State terrorists in the process.

With nearly all of the Shirqat District liberated northwest of Hawija, the Iraqi Armed Forces are on the verge of clearing the remaining Islamic State’s positions along the eastern bank of the Euphrates.

The Iraqi Armed Forces launched their Hawija operation two weeks ago and since the commencement of this offensive, the pro-government units have liberated dozens of towns and villages from the Islamic State’s grasps.
