21 February 2015

Baghdadi has today seen the arrival of Iraqi security forces and various aid shipments for the town's residents who have been besieged for some time.

Q: What are the latest details you have for today?

A: Security forces have today succeeded in securing the road between the Ayn al-Asaad Base and the residential area in southwestern Baghdadi. Trucks loaded with food aid have also arrived at the residential complex and the ISIL gunmen have been pushed back about 2 km. Snipers have taken up positions on the rooftops of homes and buildings to provide protection. There are reports that a broad military operation will be launched within the next few hours, accompanied by about 1,000 U.S. troops who arrived at the base yesterday evening.
