The Iraqi Army and their allies have been on a roll lately, capturing several sites from the Islamic State of Iraq and Al-Sham (ISIS) inside the terrorist group’s heartland (Al-Anbar Governorate), while also forestalling the latter’s advance at the imperative city of Baiji in the Salaheddine Governorate.

Recently, the Iraqi Security Forces (ISF) – in coordination with Anbari Tribesmen and their popular committees – have captured the northern suburbs of the Al-Anbar Governorate’s provincial capital (Al-Ramadi) after losing this large desert city during the terrorist group’s large-scale offensive in May of 2015.

In addition to their success in northern al-Ramadi, the Iraqi Security Forces and their allies have cutoff the terrorist group’s main supply route from their stronghold in Al-Heet to their fighters in the provincial capital’s west district; this will pay dividends for the Iraqi Army as they continue to recapture large chunks of territory lost to ISIS.

ISIS is facing complete encirclement in Al-Ramadi and with their defenses collapsing in the once untouchable cities of Al-Karma and Fallujah; it is beginning to look like its going to be a rough winter for the terrorist group.

Meanwhile, in central Iraq, the once promising ISIS offensive in the strategic city of Baiji has now turned sour, as the Iraqi Armed Forces have forestalled the terrorist group’s advance, while also recapturing lost territory in the process.
