Anbar ( Tens of Islamic State militants were killed during the liberation of the group’s last stronghold in western Anbar, an official was quoted saying on Saturday.

Speaking to Russian Sputnik news agency, Na’eem al-Kaoud, head of Anbar provincial council’s security committee, said troops killed sixteen IS members on Friday during battles in Rawa.

Brig. Gen. Yehia Rasool, spokesperson for the Joint Operations Command, announced in a statement on Friday, achieving “great victory” in Rawa, stressing that advance will resume in the depth of desert toward the Syrian borders.

Iraqi Interior Minister has said that the military presence of IS is over after the liberation of Rawa in western Anbar.

The War Media Cell said operations launched on the dawn of Friday for the “liberation of Rawa”.

Prime Minister Haidar al-Abadi announced, earlier this month, liberation of Qaim in record time. Troops also freed Ebeidi and Krabla regions in western Anbar.

Operations were launched, late October, to liberate Qaim and Rawa towns. Both have been held by the extremist group since 2014, when it occupied one third of Iraq to proclaim a self-styled Islamic “Caliphate”.

According to United Nations counts, the war against IS has displaced five million people.

  1. That all is nice. With all these killings of IS groundlings we are getting rid of people that would never deliver an value added contribution nor to the region’s nor to the world’s development. So there should never be a regret that they had been sent to hell (Djehanna). Pls, dear Iraqis, go on to bring Daesh down and take care that the IS foreign fighters will never come back to Europe again. Bury them!

  2. Tens of Islamic State Pigs sent to hell!
    They all need exterminated and any that are captured need to stand trial for war crimes.
    Both male and female IS Pigs need to be tried.

    Don’t let any off.
