Iraq deploys reinforcements for new Anbar push: officer

BAGHDAD: Iraq deployed reinforcements to a military base in Anbar on Monday for an impending operation against ISIS in the western province, a senior officer said.


“Major military reinforcements … arrived today to the Ain al-Asad base,” army Major General Ali Ibrahim Daboun said.

The forces from the counterterrorism service and police will take part in an operation in the coming days to retake the town of Heet and the nearby Kubaisa area, Daboun said.

The Al-Asad base is located northwest of those areas, while Ramadi, where government forces are also deployed, lies to its southeast.
