Iraqi forces staged rapid advance towards the center of Ramadi, capital of Anbar province, right after resuming military operations in the Northern parts of the city on Sunday morning.

Iraqi forces’ operations had stopped for two days due to the bad weather conditions in the region, but earlier today they resumed their attacks to seize back the capital of Anbar.

“The army has captured Albu Faraj bridge in Northern Ramadi and is advancing towards the city center,” Commander of Anbar Military Operations Brigadier General Esmail al-Mahlavi told al-Sumeriya News on Sunday.

The Iraqi air force is destroying ISIL’s positions in Ramadi and the army’s artillery units are targeting the Takfiri terrorists in surrounding areas.

On Saturday, the Iraqi army and volunteer forces pressed ahead with their military operations against the Takfiri militants in Anbar Province, inflicting heavy losses on them. Iraq’s army and Hashd al-Shaabi fighters continued to advance against the militants in the cities of Ramadi and Fallujah in Anbar, informed sources said.

Reports also said that foreign members and leaders of the ISIL terrorist group are escaping from the Western province of al-Anbar after major advances by Iraq’s security and popular forces.

“Given widening differences between the local terrorists and their teammates who have come to Iraq from Arab and non-Arab countries to kill the Iraqi people, we are witnessing a serious collapse in the ranks of ISIL elements in Anbar,” Spokesman of Ansar al-Najba resistance movement Hashim al-Moussavi told FNA.

According to al-Hashemi, such disputes have facilitated the Iraqi forces’ successful operations against the ISIL positions in the country. Also, field reports said that the Iraqi army and popular forces’ positive advances in Anbar have made the foreign terrorists to withdraw from the Western province.

Reports earlier this week said that Iraq’s army and Hashd al-Shaabi popular forces regained full control over several strategic bases of ISIL terrorists in Anbar. The Iraqi forces retook the ISIL bases in the areas of East Haseebah, al-Sajariyyah, Theela and Al Sufiyyah, East of the city of Ramadi, and killed dozens of the militants and destroyed scores of their armed vehicles, informed sources said.

The Iraqi army and volunteer forces intensified their military operations in the Western al-Anbar province earlier this month. The Iraqi forces launched massive offensives on ISIL terrorists in Anbar from the North, South and the West. In the North, the Iraqi forces advanced towards al-Bu Faraj in the Northern parts of the city of Ramadi.

The Iraqi army and popular forces killed dozens of ISIL terrorists in the surrounding areas of al-Bu Faraj and destroyed their military vehicles.

In the West, the Iraqi forces backed by the Iraqi air force advanced towards the Western parts of Ramadi from al-Borisheh and Zankoureh towards the Iraqi army’s 8th Brigade base.

In the South, the Iraqi army and popular forces moved towards al-Tamim region after reinforcing their positions near Al-Anbar University in the Southern parts of Ramadi; FNA reported.
