Iraqi troops successfully repelled an attack by the ISIL Takfiri group in an area in Anbar Western province, 240 km Northwest of Baghdad.
The Iraqi army inflicted heavy losses on the ISIL in the city of Haditha, as the terrorists attempted to sneak into the area.
Albu Hayat was the epicenter of the clashes where scores of the terrorists lost their lives.
The security in Iraq has drastically deteriorated since June 10, when bloody clashes broke out between Iraqi security forces and the ISIL. The latter later took control of the country’s Northern city of Mosul and seized swathes of territories in Nineveh and other predominantly Sunni provinces.
The country’s army and popular forces have, in a series of operations, started massive attacks against terrorists to liberate occupied areas, mainly Tikrit and Mosul.
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.
