Iraqi Troops Drive ISIS Out of Al-Baghdadi, U.S. Military Says - NBC News

The Iraqi military and tribal fighters have pushed ISIS militants from the town of Al-Baghdadi, the U.S. military said Friday. The terror group had held three bridges in the town — which is located near a U.S. air base — since September.

Iraqi forces also drove ISIS from seven villages near Al-Baghdadi, located south of Haditha, the U.S.-led Combined Joint Task Force said in a statement. The U.S.-led coalition conducted 26 airstrikes in as part of the effort to retake the region.

ISIS fighters launched a major offensive in Al-Baghdadi on Feb. 12, approaching the town from several directions, but Iraqi forces were able to retain control of most of the city. Al-Baghdadi is just seven miles from Ain Al-Asad Air Base, where U.S. military advisers are located.

The military also said Friday that a new round of airstrikes were launched against ISIS fighters in Syria and Iraq. Four airstrikes hit a crude oil collection point, fighters and fighting positions in Syria, and 12 airstrikes were launched against ISIS forces in Iraq Thursday and Friday local time, the task force said.

Well this is good news, the Iraqi army need to be aware that the enemy could come back and at the moment the ISIS have no morals just slaying whoever they get their hands on which is not a good thing. This will show the ISIS that, people will oppose them and terrorism is not the way to go about to ruling over people it just causes hatred and riots and bloodshed. So there will be more fights and hope, it will show that the ISIS will need to leave and will lose the power one day and their lives in battle.
