Following an intense three-day battle with the terrorists, Iraqi military forces recaptured the Nadhem Sarsar district in Anbar Province on Tuesday, the Iraqi al-Forat news agency reported.
This comes as Iraqi forces are preparing to launch a major operation against the IS terrorists in the eastern province of Diyala and the holy city of Samarra in Salahuddin Province.
According to Press TV Iraqi officials say they are determined to stop the terrorists from committing more crimes against civilians there.
Various advanced weapons, tanks and reinforcements have been sent to the frontlines to launch the liberation operations.
“There is a plan now to cleanse the provinces of Diyala and Salahuddin completely from terrorists in order to prepare for the return of the displaced citizens. Now the mission of Popular Mobilization and Iraqi forces is to secure the towns and cities,” Karim a-Nuri, the spokesman of the volunteer Popular Mobilization units said.
