The Iraqi Army, backed by the Popular Mobilization Forces (PMF), are preparing to launch a major offensive to capture the Islamic State’s last bastion (Jazirah Khalidiyah) in the eastern countryside of the Al-Anbar Governorate.

Jazirah Khalidiyah is strategically located between the large cities of Al-Ramadi and Fallujah; it is one of last barriers that is preventing the International Highway from reopening.

For the Islamic State, they have nowhere to go, as the loss of Fallujah has left them confined to Jazirah Khalidiyah’s village borders.

The Iraqi Army and their popular committees will look to liberate this rural area in the coming days, while their comrades in the north continue the southern Mosul offensive.
