ISIS has destroyed all other bridges leading to the center of the city since Iraq launched a renewed push on Ramadi earlier this month.

“Daesh [ISIS] forces trying to stop our progress bombed the last bridge which connects the city center,” said Major General Ismail al-Mahlawi, the head of military operations in the western Anbar province.

He said the locks’ destruction leaves some 300 ISIS fighters trapped in the center of the city.

Colonel Steven Warren, the spokesman for the US-led coalition in Baghdad, said the destruction of the bridge may prove to be a tactical mistake for ISIS.

He said: “What they’ve also done now is they’ve really cut themselves off. So the fighters left on the north side of the river can’t retreat and the fighters on the south side of the river can’t send reinforcements.”

“We’ve seen this before; they tend to blow up not just bridges, but a lot of infrastructure inside the city,” he said; Dailymail reported.
