90% of Ramadi Liberated by Iraqi Army
“The breakthrough was made after Friday evening’s fierce clashes between the Iraqi forces and the terrorists in the strategic region of Huz in the Southern parts of Ramadi and North of al-Zabat district,” the army sources said.
The victory will pave the ground for the Iraqi army to clean up the city center from ISIL terrorists and rebuild the bridge connecting Huz and the Southern outskirts of Ramadi, including Qadisiya region, which in turn would facilitated dispatch of troops and arms logistics to the Iraqi forces.
Iraqi officials say they believe they will have a full victory in a few days.
Iraq’s Army Spokesman Yahya Rasool Abdullah said on Friday that army continues to advance towards the center of Ramadi to free it from the ISIL.
The Iraqi armed forces started massive attacks on the ISIL last week to take back Ramadi. The government troops have already managed to take control of al-Zabat, al-Aramel and al-Bakr regions in the Southern parts of Ramadi city.
