Official: Popular Forces Readying to Attack ISIL in Anbar through Multiple Fronts
The Iraqi popular forces will attack the terrorists’ positions in Anbar province in eight directions, a popular forces official disclosed on Wednesday.
“The Iraqi security and popular forces are planning to attack Iraq through 8 different fronts… ,” Commander of Iraq’s Badr Organization Bassem al-Salami said, addressing a press conference in Anbar province today.
Salami said that the Iraqi forces are now in control of over 80 percent of al-Karma region in Anbar province and the ISIL terrorists have already left the region.
On Monday, thousands of popular forces arrived in Anbar province in Western Iraq after the provincial council called on volunteer forces to join the operations against ISIL in Ramadi.
“Over 3,000 popular forces have come to Anbar province to fight the ISIL,” the Arabic-language al-Sumeriya news website reported.
Meantime, Head of Anbar’s Provincial Council Sabah Karhout announced that the council has demanded dispatch of volunteer forces to his province in a bid to reinvigorate positions and repel ISIL from the city of Ramadi.
The ISIL Takfiri terrorists currently control shrinking swathes of Syria and Iraq. They have threatened all communities, including Shiites, Sunnis, Kurds, Christians, Ezadi Kurds and others, as they continue their atrocities in Iraq.
Senior Iraqi officials have blamed Saudi Arabia, Qatar, and some Persian Gulf Arab states for the growing terrorism in their country.
The ISIL has links with Saudi intelligence and is believed to be indirectly supported by the Israeli regime.
