Iraq readies to retake ISIL bastion near Syria border

14 September 2017 13:04

 

Iraqi forces backed by tribal fighters are maneuvering into position in the western desert bordering Syria to launch an offensive against one of the last bastions of the ISIL terrorist group.

After driving ISIL out of Nineveh province earlier this year, the Iraqi government set its eyes on Hawija, north of Baghdad, as well as the towns of Al-Qaim, Rawa and Anna in the western desert.
