Anbar ( Three Islamic State (ISIS) militants were killed and two others were arrested Wednesday in a foiled attack on al-Haditha dam west of Anbar, a local intelligence commander said.

“A force from Haditha’s popular mobilization troops managed to thwart an attack with Katyusha missiles on Haditha dam,” said Nazem al-Jugheifi, intelligence official at Haditha tribal mobilization.

“The force killed three Daesh (ISIS) terrorists and arrested two, while two others fled,” he added.

Iraqi government and tribal forces are imposing full control over the town of Haditha, and have occasionally fought off attacks by ISIS which remains in control over other towns in the west, most notably Annah and Rawa, for which Iraqis are preparing a security campaign to recapture from the militant group.
