Iraqi security forces recaptured Akashat town in Anbar governorate near the Syrian borders, Joint Forces' War Media Cell announced on Saturday.

In a press statement, the cell asserted that the Iraqi Army, Iranian Militias in Iraq and Syria (IMIS), Tribal Mobilization Forces and Anbar Police forces had managed to fully oust ISIS terrorists from the town.

It added that the forces have secured the international road near the town, noting that they have initiated an operation to cleanse the town from ISIS remnants.
