The Iraqi army and popular forces will take full control of Anbar province in the coming weeks, security experts announced, Al-Alam News Network reports.

"The Iraqi army and popular forces have made considerable advances in Al-Anbar province, Western Iraq, an indication that the ISIL will be fully defeated in the next few weeks," Iraqi security expert Saeed al-Jayashi told FNA on Sunday.

He underlined that the status of affairs in Anbar province is moving on a course that had been planned by the government.

Last week, the Iraqi volunteer forces and army managed to seize back several strategic regions in the city of Ramadi, including Al-Anbar University, from Takfiri terrorists’ control.

Iraq’s counter-terrorism units announced that the Iraqi flags have been hoisted now over Al-Anbar University’s buildings.

Tens of ISIL terrorists have been killed and dozens more injured in heavy clashes with Iraqi troops.

Meantime, the Iraqi army and the volunteer forces won back control over strategic hilltops in the Eastern parts of the city of al-Ramadi.
