OVER 50 IRAQI SOLDIERS KILLED IN RAMADI
The first attack took place in the early hours of Tuesday when several suicide car bombers attacked the headquarters of the tenth Iraqi army division in northern Ramadi, partially recaptured by Iraqi forces three weeks ago, killing 30 soldiers and pro-government fighters. ISIS still remains strong particularly in the city’s eastern district and in the al-Sijariya neighbourhood.
Separately, at noon on Tuesday, a dozen ISIS suicide car bombers tried to breach the Iraqi army barracks on the border of al-Baghdadi city, west of Ramadi, killing 25 more Iraqi soldiers and tribal fighters in the process.
The attacks come a day after Iraqi forces uncovered more than 40 bodies, including those of women and children, in a mass grave in Ramadi. Interior ministry spokesman Brigadier General Saad Maan said the grave in central Ramadi contained the bodies of civilians as well as police, the Associated Press reported. It is obvious that the battle of Ramadi is still far from over.
