17 October 2014

The main development today is the security operation announced by the Anbar Operations Command in conjunction with the Anbar Police Command against the western districts of Ramadi. Dozens of military and armored vehicles are still on their way to the area from which loud explosions are being heard in addition to the sounds of the fierce clashes up to this minute. We do not yet have any details of the operation.

In the areas around Baghdadi, ISIL is carrying out an attack that has resulted in heavy clashes but the security forces have prevented the gunmen from penetrating the town's perimeter. Some residential districts have been shelled, resulting in major material damage in a number of residential homes.

In Fallujah and Garma, coalition warplanes have targeted a number of ISIL positions. The security forces have announced that at least 23 gunmen have been killed during the past few hours.

In northeastern riverside areas of Ramadi, security forces have announced that they have taken control of the rural areas along the banks across the Euphrates from Ramadi, after killing a number of the gunmen there.
