Iraqi security forces have liberated southern areas of the cities of Fallujah and Ramadi in the western Anbar province from the ISIS Takfiri terrorists, officials say.

“The 16th division of the Rapid Intervention Forces carried out a tactical operation in al-Naimiyah and managed to liberate it and arrive at a distance of 700 meters from Shuhada neighborhood south of Fallujah,” the deputy president of the Anbar provincial council, Faleh al-Issawi, said on Wednesday.

He also noted that both cities would soon be fully liberated by security forces, local police and residents, while stressing that “the recent progress has tightened the siege on ISIL.”

Meanwhile, Iraqi military and security officials announced that at least 13 government troops were killed in bombing attacks and clashes with the terrorist group in Anbar.

The Iraqi army, backed by volunteer forces, has managed to drive ISIS terrorists out of many areas they seized last year.
