In Ramadi, a major security operation was launched today by army, police, and tribal volunteer forces aimed at re-taking the city's western districts, but we can still hear and see continuous explosions and columns of smoke, and the combined security forces could not penetrate into that area.
Other parts of Ramadi are relatively calm, including the southern and northern sectors of the city.
In Fallujah, casualty figures have increased since yesterday evening as a result of the continuing bombardment of many of the city's residential districts, particularly the southern and central districts, leaving 4 residents killed and 7 wounded.
In Al-Garma, northeast of Fallujah, the central districts were bombarded. The town's general hospital has confirmed the deaths of 3 residents with 11 others wounded.
