VIDEO: Iraqi Army Troops Attack ISIS Militants in Baiji

Wed Jun 22, 2016 20:24:46

Iraqi military forces have advanced towards Islamic State (ISIS / Daesh / ISIL) terrorist group positions north of Baiji and reclaimed two villages along the way in the northern Salaheddin province, an army official said on Tuesday.

Iraqi government troops, backed by some Sunni tribesman and U.S. airstrikes, liberated the town of Baiji from the Islamic State (ISIS / Daesh / ISIL) terrorist group in late 2015.

But the extremists still control some areas on the outskirts of Salaheddin province and the Iraqi army is working to liberate the entire region.
