The Iraqi army units backed by popular forces and Air Force managed to seize back al-Sajjariya region East of Ramadi city in Anbar province on Sunday.

Early battlefield reports said a large number of the ISIS terrorists were killed during the Iraqi army offensives on their positions in al-Sajjariya region.

The army units are defusing roadside bombs and improvised explosive devices (IEDs) in al-Sajjariya region and preparing to break the siege of Eastern Hasbiya and al-Jubiya regions close to al-Sajjariya now.

In a relevant development on Wednesday, the Iraqi army and the volunteer forces made considerable advances against the Takfiri terrorists in the Western part of the city of Fallujah in Anbar province, killing notorious ISIS commanders in fierce clashes.

The Iraqi forces advanced in the strategic region of al-Saqlaviya and reached the surrounding areas of al-Habaniya military base near the riverside.

Over 40 terrorists were killed in the Iraqi forces’ attack on their positions in al-Saqlaviya region.

The main purpose of the Iraqi forces’ attacks on the Western part of Fallujah was cutting the terrorists’ supply lines with the surrounding areas of al-Saqlaviya region.

Notorious ISIS commanders, including Abu Ali al-Salmani, Abu Mansour, Abu Jafar al-Shami, Abu Torab al-Shami and Abu al-Ez al-Souri were among scores of terrorists killed in the Iraqi forces' attacks on the Western part of Fallujah city.

Also on Tuesday, the Iraqi Security forces managed to cut off supply routes to ISIS terrorists in city of Fallujah.

Iraqi military commanders added the security forces also opened safe passages for the locals to exit the city which has been occupied by the Takfiri terrorists since 2014.

According to media reports, meanwhile, a military commander told reporters that liberating the city will be a gradual process as the noose around ISIS terrorists is being tightened.

This is considered as a significant progress for the Iraqi security forces, as the Iraqi forces recently increased their efforts to win back the strategic city in Western Iraq.

The ISIS terrorists have sustained heavy losses and casualties in recent attacks on their positions in Anbar province in Western Iraq.

During a recent operation Iraqi forces killed 30 terrorists while advancing towards al-Sajjariya region located to the East of Ramadi city and razed their strongholds while defusing seven roadside bombs. It also said that 14 terrorists, including two snipers, were killed and their strongholds were destroyed during the Iraqi air force strikes on their positions, FNA reported.
