Iraqi government forces were able to repel an attack by militants of the radical Islamic State group on the town of Al Amiriyah, which is located west of Baghdad.

The Iraqi army repelled the attack of militants "Islamic state" to the west of Baghdad


According to a local police spokesman, the Islamists organized an attack on Amiriya on Sunday night. He also noted that representatives of the Sunni tribes fought on the side of the army.

"They attacked from two sides ... The fight lasted about five hours ... In the end, military planes attacked the militants and killed 15 of them," the police officer told RIA "News".

One of the IS leaders in Fallujah Mullah Jassem Mohammed Hamad was killed in the attack.

It is worth noting that the Iraqi Defense Ministry stated that the militants several times bombarded the chlorine-containing materials with bombs, which they installed on the roads.

“A number of“ daish ”terrorist groups (the name IG established in Arabic) used chlorine in a number of areas near water treatment plants in the form of land mines with which they mined roads, handicrafts that do not have a significant destructive effect,” departments.

He also noted that, at the moment, the militants do not have enough chlorine available to provide a striking effect.

“There has not yet been a single case of chlorine damage in those areas where such land mines were used,” the military added.

    Congratulations to the Iraqi authorities on this victory.
    “They attacked from two sides ... The fight lasted about five hours ... In the end, military aircraft attacked the militants and killed 15 of them”

        Here that week, the next Mi-35 flew to Ruslan. Mi-28 is already there. 8 Su-25 (2 lost) - they actually delivered from the presence of the Air Force + Iran still surpassed 6 Su-25 (1 lost in battle, the Iranian Air Force pilot died).



        Iraq even put the TOS.

    The Americans opened the Pandora's Box. Now the whole world will have to disentangle.

    It’s good that they recaptured, but the news should sound differently something like: the militants barely managed to repel the attack of the Iraqi troops ...

      Yeah ... Until SUCH news - how to walk to Berlin.
      The Iraqi army has proven its "prowess" in the first clashes with ISIS. What could have changed since then?

        On the side of the official Iraqi army, fighters from the "IRGC" appeared ... and this is already having an effect.

    The shootout lasted 5 hours and, as a result, 15 killed, and then, stupidly from an air strike! Either everyone fights badly and the cruelty of some is too exaggerated, but the fighting efficiency of others, on the contrary, is minimized or it is profitable for everyone to go this way, it is incomprehensible!

    What happened? Well, with an initiative! Maybe earlier it was necessary to stop running, and finally try to fight honestly? The devil is not so terrible, but at such a pace they are about fifty years old.

    What a terrible attack laughing Already on both sides, 5 hours of battle and the aircraft decided the matter. Already 15 killed militants. Don't you think this is some kind of strange war? It’s good that the Iraqis, as usual, didn’t run away, throwing weapons and equipment. Maybe this was the victory?

    The more I think about the situation, the more garbage it turns out request ... Think about it ... It turns out that in 5 hours (!!!) of "struggle" between the police and the Islamist group that attacked the city, only 15 militants were killed, and even those only with the help of aviation ??? ...
    And the police then where all this time shot ??? ... Or did they really fight them ??? fool ...
    Something here doesn’t fit request ...

      I also thought about it.
      It turns out that for five hours they shot in the air amicably and enthusiastically (rather, they were very apart from each other), then the aircraft flew in and bombed the militants.
      If aviation had not arrived, the shootout would have lasted another five hours, without casualties on both sides.
      They have a strange war there.
