The Iraqi Army’s 7th Division – backed by the Popular Mobilization Forces (PMF) – expelled the remaining Islamic State of Iraq and Al-Sham (ISIS) terrorists that were operating inside the Al-Heet District of Al-Anbar. While liberating the Al-Heet District, the Iraqi Armed Forces reportedly killed over 50 Islamic State terrorists, including a number of foreign combatants.

Earlier this week, ISIS was able to enter the Al-Heet District after overrunning the defenses of the local tribal fighters. Once ISIS seized several sites in the Al-Heet District, the Iraqi Armed Forces redeployed to this area in order to expel the terrorist combatants that were wrecking havoc on the local populous.
