Today ISIS launched a series of attacks on the outskirts of Ramadi. Despite early reports that ISIS had over run Ramadi, it has been revealed that the attacks concentrated mostly on areas in the north of Ramadi.
Conflicting claims have emerged on the ISIS attacks on the Iraqi Army’s 10th Division Headquarters. Reports have said the base was completely taken over whilst newer reports claim that the attack was in fact repelled and failed.
Reports have also said that ISIS attacked an area 35km west of Ramadi and Husaybah on Ramadi’s  eastern outskirts.

Initial claims of Ramadi city center being over run along with multiple bridges over the Euphrates captured and Houz along with 11 bases also captured have yet to be verified. It is most probable that the center of Ramadi and its bridges have not been captured by ISIS but these initial reports still linger. The Iraqi army have stated these are false claims. ISIS on the other hand have announced they captured 11 army army bases.

As events are unfolding, no reliable sources have revealed ground information. Although most information on  ISIS advances have come from its official news agency Amaq, they’ve all been bitterly dismissed by Iraqi officials. Amaq have just released this footage of ISIS fighting Iraqi security forces.

Meanwhile, Iraqi security forces have begun evacuating civilians with the expectation that ISIS will launch a mass scale attack on the city over the coming days.
