A video was released by the Iraqi Ministry of Defence allegedly showing Iraqi jet fighters carrying out airstrikes on ISIS group vehicles and personnel in Ramadi.

The footage, released on Friday, is said to have been filmed from a jet fighter over the Anbar province, where Iraqi air forces support a government offensive to retake the region from extremist militants.

The Ministry of Defence said in a statement attached to the video that the ISIS group had suffered heavy losses in men and equipment following the attack.

The Iraqi government is carrying out a wide-scale operation to recapture areas under the control of the IS group in the western Anbar province, after suffering a humiliating defeat in the regional capital, Ramadi.
