Iraqi forces clash with Islamic State in western Anbar

ANBAR –

According to Islamic State outlet ‘Amaq News Agency,’ Iraqi forces launched a military operation from northwest of al-Baghdadi towards areas close to the city of Hit.

Clashes broke out late last night near a cement factory where the Islamic State claims Iraqi progress was halted after a barrage of “ambushes, roadside bombs, and rockets.”

Iraq has been planning on taking the city of Hit back and is currently moving in reinforcements and equipment for the operations.
