The Islamic State of Iraq and Al-Sham’s (ISIS) Baiji campaign has ended in a devastating defeat at the hands of the Iraqi Security Forces (ISF) and Hashd Al-Sha’abi after two months of non-stop fighting at this strategic city inside the Salahiddeen Governorate of central Iraq.

For two weeks, the Iraqi Army and the popular committees – led by Hashd Al-Sha’abi – combatting ISIS near the imperative Baiji Oil Refinery and its surrounding oil plants, where the terrorist group took refuge after sustaining a heavy loss of military personnel and equipment.

The liberation of Baiji was led by Hashd Al-Sha’abi and the Iraqi Army, who continuously combatted the encroaching ISIS fighters attempting to take full control of this city; this serious threat from the terrorist group prompted the Iraqi Army’s Central Command to restart operations inside of Baiji and force ISIS to leave the area once and for all.

In addition to their capture of Baiji, the Iraqi Security Forces and popular committees took full control of Albu Jawari after they advanced their positions from the Baiji Oil Refinery.

With Baiji liberated, the Iraqi Security Forces will turn their attention to the imperative ISIS strongholds of Al-Ramadi (provincial capital of the Al-Anbar Governorate), Karma (long-time Jihadist stronghold), and Al-Fallujah (long-time Jihadist stronghold).
