Two months after losing the provincial capital of the Al-Anbar (Al-Ramadi) Governorate to the Islamic State of Iraq and Al-Sham (ISIS), the Iraqi Security Forces (ISF) have restarted their military operations inside this province.

The Iraqi Army’s 5th Division – in cooperation with Hashd Al-Sha’abi, Liwaa Al-Badr, and local tribesmen – stormed the southern perimeter of Al-Ramadi on Sunday morning, capturing the entire Al-‘Anbar University campus after fierce clashes with the Islamic State of Iraq and Al-Sham inside this provincial capital in west Iraq.

Firefights are still ongoing between the Iraq Armed Forces and ISIS inside Al-Ramadi’s southern perimeter; however, the Iraqi Army’s 5th Division has advanced this morning, capturing a number of building blocks from the terrorist group.

In addition to their assault on Al-Ramadi, the Iraqi Armed Forces have continued their offensive near the city of Fallujah, killing scores of enemy combatants, while also destroying a half dozen armored vehicles mounted with a variety of anti-aircraft machine guns.

Meanwhile, northeast of Fallujah, the Iraqi Armed Forces targeted ISIS at the city of Karma, where they attempted to break-through the terrorist group’s frontline defenses; however, ISIS was able to maintain their positions amid the powerful assault by the Iraqi Armed Forces.
