"The 7th Battalion of Al-Jazeera Operations has found a big chemical compound of the ISIS," the Arabic-language Sumeria News quoted Al-Jazeera Operations Commander Major General Ali Ibrahim Daboun as saying today.

He noted that the factory was located in a region to the West of Heet city some 70 kilometers to the West of Ramadi city.

General Daboun reiterated that the bags full of raw materials for making explosives and poisonous gases have been discovered from the chemical compound.

Earlier on Monday, the Iraqi army and volunteer forces (Hashd al-Shaabi) continued their advances in Anbar province, and seized back a strategic village near the city of Mosul.

The Iraqi army and Hashd al-Shaabi are now in full control of Karabuk village in Makmour region in Anbar province.
