The Islamic State has released a new video showcasing recent battles in the Al Sufiyah area of eastern Ramadi in which Approximately 30 Iraqi soldiers have been killed.
The video also shows that around 100 more Iraqi soldiers have been injured in recent days in the western provincial capital.
Two weeks ago, the Islamic State advanced in Al Sufiyah after attacking the area in a larger offensive.
Fighting also took place in the Sijiariyah area, opposite to Al Sufiyah in which the Iraq Security Forces killed at least 23 Islamic State fighters and forced others to flee.
In the recent days, the Islamic State launched an offensive on Ramadi 110 kilometers west of Baghdad.
The Islamic State used two suicide bombers, including one Syrian to start the offensive.
Since the offensive, Iraqi forces have been able to recapture a bridge and other areas in the center of Ramadi from the Islamic State.
The Iraqi Security Forces have also been reported to have recaptured Sufiyah. However, other media reports say thet there are still a few troops of the Islamic State militants in Sufiyah.
Video has emerged recently showing ISF personnel taking down the Islamic State’s flag and raising the Iraqi flag in the military barracks near the Thar Thar dam.
