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.
