The Iraqi army, backed by popular forces, purged a strategic district in the city of al-Karama in Western Anbar province of ISIL Takfiri terrorists on Wednesday.
The army units regained control of al-Roza district in Central al-Karama. Al-Roza was considered an important stronghold of the terrorists in al-Karama.
Iraq’s popular forces besieged ISIL terrorists in a bazaar in Central Karama from four sides.
On Saturday, an informed source announced that the Iraqi Army and volunteer forces from Sunni tribes had recaptured a major portion of al-Karama from the ISIL control, inflicting heavy losses upon the terrorists in the battlefields.
The source said that over 80 percent of al-Karama had been taken back from the ISIL terrorists in the Iraqi army’s massive operations.
Simultaneous with the army’s offensive against the ISIL strongholds in al-Karama, a large number of popular forces from the region’s Sunni tribes joined the army men to eradicate the ISIL from the region.
The ISIL Takfiri terrorists currently control shrinking swathes of Syria and Iraq. They have threatened all communities, including Shiites, Sunnis, Kurds, Christians, Ezadi Kurds and others, as they continue their atrocities in Iraq.
Senior Iraqi officials have blamed Saudi Arabia, Qatar, and some Persian Gulf Arab states for the growing terrorism in their country.
The ISIL has links with Saudi intelligence and is believed to be indirectly supported by the Israeli regime.
