“53 militants were destroyed, nine suicide-guided vehicles loaded with explosives, and four units of military equipment used by the IS militants in the failed attack on Al-Hayakel areas and the University of Fallujah,” a Shiite militia representative said.
Earlier, Iraqi soldiers and fighters of the Shiite and Sunni tribal militia began a large-scale military operation against militants in the territory of the western province of Anbar. At the moment, the most fierce battles are taking place in the administrative center of the province - the city of Ramadi, which was seized by the "Islamic State" in May of 2015.
