Artillery shelling of the ISIL Takfiri terrorists' strongholds in the Western side of Ramadi left at least 15 militants killed and several more wounded.

“The artillery units of al-Jazeerah and al-Badiyah Operations Command shelled two gathering centers of the ISIL in the area of Albu Hayat in Haditha District (160 km West of Ramadi), killing over 15 militants," Commander of al-Jazeerah and al-Badiyah Operations Major General Ali Ibrahim Daboun announced.

On Tuesday, the Iraqi defense ministry announced that massive offensives of the Iraqi army alongside the volunteer forces have forced the ISIL Takfiri terrorists to retreat from the Northern fronts of Ramadi.

“The Iraqi army with the support of Shiite forces of Hashed al-Shaabi, arrived in the area of Albu Hais in Ramadi Island, in the Northern side of Ramadi city, after fierce battles against the ISIL terrorists, who are fleeing from the fighting area,” the ministry said in a statement.
