24 September 2014

Ramadi and surroundings:
Following the major operation by the security forces in the rural areas on the Euphrates rural areas on the opposite side of the river from Ramadi, gunmen have attempted to re-take those areas, but security sources are saying that the operations are still underway, supported by air strikes by Iraqi warplanes.

Meanwhile, the closure of all the bridges in Ramadi by security forces has resulted in a rise in the prices of foodstuffs and forced many shops and businesses to close. This has forced Ramadi residents to call for relief action.

Air strikes:
A source at the Anbar Command has confirmed that U.S. warplanes have carried out strikes in the regions along the Iraqi-Syrian border at Qaim. The strikes and security operations in the region have killed dozens of ISIL gunmen. French warplanes have also flown sorties and strikes in the Garma area northeast of Fallujah and in Sichir.

In Fallujah, ongoing bombardment of the city today has killed 3 residents and wounded 6.
