The Iraqi army defeated the city of Karma from the Islamists


"Government forces entered Karma and are now deploying to strike Fallujah, located in 45 km west of Baghdad,"
It is said in the message of the media corporation.

In response to the south of Fallujah, the militants launched a counterattack that was prevented from the air by military helicopters.

To the north of the city, terrorists blew up a car filled with explosives. Several soldiers were killed and about a dozen injured.

Earlier it was reported that as a result of an air attack of the coalition forces in Fallujah, one of the leaders of the IG was destroyed.

    Judging by the photos, American SUVs, in some places, are quite combat-ready! Well, it's true, and Iraq is not a "third world" country ... like some ...

      The armored guards look impressive --- it’s also impressive protection against bullets and splinters. It’s more convenient for a machine gunner to aim when he’s not flying in the face. Our ours also need to take care of such factory equipment of armored vehicles. It’s better than the soldiers then to make homemade birdhouses.

        On a different occasion, a thought slipped through this morning. Hexagonal beveled open tower, on each side - wide bulletproof glass.
        Output!

      Oil has nothing to do with it. Just one transportation of this old-fashioned equipment will fly into a penny. Here and presented to the nobleman.

    stormed and not entirely successful. I wonder what parts of the Iraqi army will attack the Shiite Kurds? Or they will attract the militias of the Sunni tribes, which make up most of the Daesh forces.

    This is the first significant victory for the Iraqi forces since the beginning of the campaign to liberate Fallujah.
    Prime Minister Haider al-Abad tweeted in Arabic congratulating the people of Iraq on the "liberation of al-Karma" and ordered security forces to remain there to protect civilians.
    The UN said it feared for the thousands of families who ended up in Fallujah, a traditionally Sunni city, whether an offensive by government troops would hurt their lives.

    Yeah, now the United States will bomb a couple of Iraqi divisions "by mistake", and the ISIS will take back this Karma.

    As long as the Americans rule in Iraq, there’s no shit. Today they took it, they will give it back tomorrow. That’s the whole point of American politics, because they are the main suppliers of weapons, at the same time to both sides.
    That's why the news from Iraq always raises doubts about their reality.

    In fact, at the beginning of the week, Iraqis announced that they were starting to storm Fallujah, armored cars drove in front of screens, infantry fired somewhere, MLRS fired. And now it turns out, after a week, that they are only preparing for the assault. Strange somehow it turns out ...
