IRAQ: Military Attempts to Recapture Ramadi

On 6 October, the Iraqi military began an operation to recapture the city of Ramadi, which has been under ISIS control since May. The military took advantage of an approaching sandstorm to position themselves favorably and by 7 October, the Iraqi forces recaptured several kilometers of Ramadi. It is crucial that the Iraqi military recapture Ramadi, as it is a stronghold in the Anbar province.
