In Baghdadi, security forces have repelled an ISIL attack in the township's southwestern sector, killing 3 of the gunmen in the area across the Euphrates leading to Haditha.

In Ramadi, fierce clashes broke out today when ISIL gunmen attempted to penetrate into the city's western districts. The attack was repelled and 17 gunmen were killed in the fighting, according to Anbar Operations sources.

Fierce clashes also erupted today in Ramadi's southern sector, where security forces have seized control of several districts.
In Shujariya, security forces have established full control of that area and have disabled and removed more than 100 explosive devices planted by the ISIL gunmen.
