Iraq Forces Warn ISIS in Ramadi Could Take Control Over the Key Iraqi City

The war against ISIS in Iraq has once again taken a new dimension despite the victorious battle against ISIS in Tikrit.

Iraqi forces on Wednesday warned that ISIS in Ramadi could soon take control over the city just like they did in Tikrit.

Ramadi, which is the capital of Al Anbar province and situated in the West of Baghdad is well known to be a Sunni’s strategic land. Equally, most of the ISIS fighters are Sunnis.

Iraqi forces have engaged in fierce fighting with ISIS in Ramadi and it is now not certain whether the Iraqi forces will still be able to battle against ISIS in Ramadi, Iraq’s Sunni heartland.

The Iraqi forces had previously warned the government of a possibility that the forces could be overpowered by the militant groups. Deputy Head of the Anbar Provincial Council Falih Essawi has further called upon the Iraqi government to quickly reinforcement Iraqi forces and the U.S.-led coalition for air support against ISIS in Ramadi.

The fight against the militia group in Iraq has lasted for several months despite the airstrikes conducted on their hide outs killing a number of these jihadists.

Their infiltration into Ramadi, south of Tikrit has driven a number of refugees out of the city, one of the most populated areas in Anbar province.

Anbar province fell into the hands of these extremists in 2014.
