  1. In Ramadi I heard that it was a team of ISIS snipers that provided covering fire whilst an ISIS armoured bulldozer removed concrete walls so the ISIS armoured suicide vehicles could get to and explode right on top of the Golden Division position, this caused the Golden Division to start a retreat as they couldn’t stop the mass strikes of ISIS armoured suicide vehicles. Now Iraqi soldiers and police have thousands of AT4 anti-tank rockets from the US to counter ISIS armoured suicide vehicles. I hope Iraqi forces got the rest of the ISIS team of snipers and not just the prominent one, maybe they were amongst the 15 mentioned.
