Informed military sources disclosed that Iraq's joint military forces have launched fresh large-scale military operations to win two key regions near the city of Fallujah in Anbar province.

"Anbar province's police and counterterrorism forces started massive operations to seize back Jabil region and Fallujah dam in the Southern part of Fallujah city," the Arabic-language Sumeria News quoted an unnamed informed military source as saying on Tuesday.

The Iraqi joint forces will take control of Jabil region first in order to pave their way to seize back Fallujah Dam.

On Sunday, the Iraqi government troops continued their advances in the Southern part of the city of Fallujah, and seized back two strategic regions after heavy clashes with the ISIS Takfiri terrorists.

"Al-Falahat and al-Sabihat region in the Southern part of Fallujah city are now under the control of our forces," Anbar Operations' Commander announced.

Meantime, the commander of Iraqi Federal Police Major General Raed Shaker Judat said that a dozen ISIS terrorists were killed in the clashes over al-Falahat and al-Sabihat regions.

The military vehicles of the terrorists were also destroyed in the army's offensive.

On Saturday, military sources announced that the Iraqi army and tribal forces have started fresh operations to win back two strategic regions in the Western part of the city of Fallujah.

"The Iraqi army's eighth battalion and air force kicked off fresh military operations to liberate Fallujah's Western parts," Commander of Anbar operations Esmayeel al-Mahlavi said.

He noted that the Iraqi tribal forces will help the army to conduct its large-scale operations in Western Fallujah.

Earlier on Saturday, Iraq's joint forces managed to break the defense lines of the ISIS in Southern Fallujah, and killed the Takfiri terrorist group's religious judge in the Southern part of Salahuddin province.

ISIS's religious judge, Jassem Mohammad Sarhan al-Shablavi, was killed in an Iraqi air raid in al-Jomhouriya region in the Southern part of Salahuddin province, battlefield sources announced.

The Iraqi army also took control of the ISIS's defense lines in Southern Fallujah.

The Iraqi government troops also continued their advances in Jabil region in Southern Fallujah on Saturday.

On Thursday, battlefield sources announced that the Takfiri terrorists in Fallujah city were surrounded from the Northern, Eastern and Southern directions.

"A large-scale operation to retake the city will resume imminently," the sources added; FNA reported.
