Iraqi troops and militia launched an assault on Ramadi

17
The time expired for the civilian population of the Iraqi city of Ramadi to leave the city. These terms (72 hours) were provided by the official authorities of Iraq, whose troops came very close to the settlement in order to dislodge the militants of the so-called Islamic State from there. 72 hours have expired, and the Iraqi army launched an assault on Ramadi. It is reported by the news agency TASS.


Iraqi troops and militia launched an assault on Ramadi


The report says that the Iraqi armed forces, with the support of the national militia, advanced to the central quarters of the city, which for several years was under the complete control of the fighters DAISH (IG). It is noted that the main goal of the army units at this stage of the operation is to take control of administrative buildings located in the center of Ramadi.

IG fighters, judging by reports from Iraq, are clearly not going to surrender the city to the Iraqi army and militia without a fight. Thus, as a result of one of the counterattacks inflicted by the militants, at least 14 of Iraqi military personnel died, more than 30 were injured of varying degrees of severity. According to the Al-Jazeera TV channel, the igilovtsy use mortar bombs against the Iraqi army and arrange targeted bombings. One of the tactics of militants is a purposeful exit from the buildings that remain under crossfire and at the same time are mined. The fighters of the Iraqi army, believing that they have taken control of the building, fall into a fire trap, eventually suffering great losses.

About a week ago, the Pentagon reported that the blows of the "coalition" had allowed more than half of the militants to be dislodged from the city. The statement tunes in for certain reflections, especially if one considers that only after these attacks the Iraqi army threw leaflets on Ramadi calling for civilians to leave the city. It turns out that the planes of the American coalition bombed Al-Ramadi at a time when civilians did not even begin to leave the city blocks ...

    When were these flying sheriffs worried about the problems of the lower Indians?
    They bomb on the principle: "who counts them down there?"

      And where are the 100 mattresses of special forces? The Obama beat himself with a heel in the chest, that these superfighters will defeat Daesh, liberate Iraq and bring peace and democracy to the peoples of the Middle East. fellow

      Has it ever been different? A country on whose territory modern wars were not waged does not know what it is and the population is prospering quietly. The people of the United States are not at all interested in the foreign policy of the state, therefore their politicians are doing what they want, they need to change this situation so that they try all the "charms" in their own skin ...

      To the Iraqis, yes ... there is no Western coalition.
      The aviation of the Western coalition is engaged in the extermination of the local population ... in their understanding, victory is the land below survived to the appearance of the lunar landscape.

    The Iraqi army is very weak and successes, even with the support of the American coalition, are difficult.

      You probably wanted to say: despite the support of the American coalition, something still succeeds!

    Again an accident? It is more like a system. And so, about a million Iraqi citizens have already died from the Desert Storm, and such actions are clearly not coordinated with the Iraqi army.

      What is there to be surprised at?
      There is a difference between point air strikes
      and ground attack on the city center.
      In the second case, civilian casualties
      many times more.

    I wish to hear about the complete liberation of this city, as well as many other cities in Iraq, and in Syria, and in Libya. The Barmalei proved to be stubborn and ruthless fighters, and skillful enough to inflict serious losses on the advancing troops.

    So, so ... But it would be nice to ask civilians about this coalition situation. For the purpose of filing lawsuits in the Human Rights Council ... This is Matras ... nicknames are not Yugoslavia .. You can’t just wipe your legs off Russia’s legs and mouth shut up ..

    This is not accurate information. The city was captured in May of this year.

    "..strikes of the" coalition "allowed to drive out more than half of the militants from the city .." And if we consider that in the presence of the urban population, then in the spirit of mattresses it is to calculate the losses of the militants along with the loss of the population. They are not in the first.

    Dear Alexander, before demanding something from human rights defenders, you need to send them a penny, because all work must be paid. But in their free time, human rights defenders are undoubtedly indignant.

    I still do not understand why ours (even the press) will not blame the Americans for the destruction of civilians? And then in the West everyone yells that our VKS bomb civilians in Syria, and we are silent.
