Al-Baghdadi district liberated from ISIL amid western media’s lies on ISIL’s progress
Iraqi security forces have retaken from the ISIL Takfiri militants the center of al-Baghdadi district, located in the east of the city of Ramadi, the capital of the western al-Anbar Province.
“The security forces have also killed dozens of ISIL militants in their operation to recapture al-Baghdadi district’s center,” Iraq’s Alsumaria news agency reported on Saturday, quoting Aziz Khalaf al-Tarmouz, the security deputy of Anbar governor.
“The army and police forces backed by anti-ISIL tribesmen launched a military operation Saturday morning to liberate the center of al-Baghdadi district”, Tarmouz added.
The strategic district is situated near the Iraqi air base of Ayn al-Asad, which reportedly houses more than 300 US marines.
The liberation came one day after the ISIL terrorists launched an attack on the air base.
The ISIL that started its campaign of terror in Iraq in early June 2014, now control parts of Iraq and neighboring Syria.
Iraqi soldiers, police units, Kurdish forces, Shia volunteers and Sunni tribesmen have succeeded in driving the ISIL militants out of some areas in Iraq.
