09 November 2014



ISIL has achieved revenge for the attempt yesterday by security forces to penetrate into Hit Township. Bu-Nimr tribal sources have announced that ISIL has executed more than 70 tribal members, and there are more than 300 who are listed as missing. It is thought that they are being held in prisons within the township.

Military operations have continued overnight in Baghdadi and in the Kubaisa area west of Hit. The SWAT commander in Baghdadi, Col. Sha'aban Al-Obaidi, has confirmed that security forces have repelled an ISIL attack aimed at taking the area. 11 gunmen were killed while trying to infiltrate the areas.

An Anbar Council source has confirmed that the airstrike against a gathering of ISIL members was indeed targeting the ISIL leadership, including its leader Abu Bakr Al-Baghdadi who is believed to have been severely wounded in the attack, and has been moved into Syrian territory. Further similar airstrikes are expected.

The Anbar Council held a press conference today, during which its leader confirmed that several meetings have been held with tribal leaders and religious scholars aimed at shedding light on all the issues of concern in the Province.

On the humanitarian front, Baghdadi and its surrounding areas are suffering the effects of the total blockade by ISIL forces that has prevented any food or fuel from reaching these areas. Amiriyat Al-Fallujah is also being subjected to a stranglehold blockade that has caused serious food and fuel shortages.

Meanwhile the Fallujah General Hospital announced today that 3 residents have been killed and 11 wounded by the bombardment exchanges between the security forces surrounding the city and the ISIL gunmen within it.
