Iraqi forces have managed to liberate more areas near the strategic city of Fallujah in Anbar province from the control of the Daesh (ISIS / ISIL) terrorist group, tightening noose around the militants in the city.

Iraq’s counter-terrorism forces regained control of the neighborhood of al-Shuhada Two to the south of the Fallujah on Wednesday, according to the Arabic-language al-Sumaria news website.

According to the report, the forces raised the Iraqi flag over the buildings of the district and are continuing to advance towards others areas.

The development comes as Lieutenant General Abdelwahab al-Saadi, the commander of Fallujah Liberation Operations, said on Tuesday that government forces, together with fighters from the allied Popular Mobilization Units, are poised to liberate Fallujah from Daesh within the next few days.

On May 22, Iraqi Prime Minister Haider al-Abadi announced the start of the liberation operation of the Daesh-held Fallujah. Nearly 70 kilometers west of the capital Baghdad, the strategic city in the Anbar province, has been under the Takfiris’ control since 2014.
