In Ramadi, there have been intermittent clashes and the sounds of explosions in the western parts of the city, and there are also military operations underway in the southern sector. We have also seen that residents have been returning to their homes in the city's central districts.
In Anbar's western regions, Syrian planes have attacked the town of
Hseibah, part of the Al-Qa'im township. Three
citizens were killed in the raids and 4 were wounded. The other areas under
the control of the gunmen are relatively calm, particularly in Rawa, Ana, and
Rutba. There has been some military action near the strategically important
Haditha Dam. Haditha is basically under siege and people fear the consequence
of the capture by the gunmen of this vital installation.
