Iraq Military Retakes Ramadi From ISIS

Iraqi authorities expect to announce Monday that they have retaken the key city of Ramadi, seven months after ISIS seized it in what was seen as an embarrassing defeat for the U.S.-backed Iraqi forces.

But there are reports that the Islamic State is putting up a stubborn fight. Iraqi forces launched an offensive to retake Ramadi, the largest city in Iraq’s western Anbar Province, earlier this month, advancing toward the city center and surrounding it with thousands of fighters.
