The source said that the army bombarded ISIS hideouts in three axes: First, Annah, al-Rihana cities, second, Rawa city and nearby villages, third, Okashat city and part of Biaaj village towards the desert of Qa’im.
Anbar Governorate is witnessing recurrent ISIS attacks that target civilians and security forces, particularly the western districts of the governorate.
Qa’im. Annah and Rawa cities in western Anabr are still under ISIS’ control.
Last week, Iraqi Air Force's aircraft dropped hundred thousands of leaflets over Hawija city in Kirkuk Governorate and cities in western Anbar.
The leaflets contained news on victories achieved in Iraq, ISIS defeats and warnings to ISIS so that the group's terrorists either surrender or die.
This comes after Prime Minister Haider al-Abadi announced last week that the Iraqi security forces launched an offensive to recapture the city of Tal Afar, their next objective in the US-backed campaign to defeat ISIS terrorists.
