(Worthy News)– Ramadi, the capital of Anbar providence, is under seige by ISIS as at least 10 Iraqi security forces were killed and more than 100 others were wounded as the strategic city is threatened to fall to the extremist organization.
The extremist group’s offensive in Ramadi shows its resilience despite months of U.S.-led airstrikes and its recent defeat by Iraqi forces in the northern city of Tikrit.
Essawi, the deputy head of the Anbar Provincial Council, told CNN from inside the city Wednesday that it’s unclear how much longer government troops can hold their front lines against the ISIS offensive.
Essawi said ISIS militants made significant advances Wednesday in three areas east of Ramadi: Albu Soda, Albu Ghanem and parts of Soufia, which leads to central Ramadi. Later, he said that militants were rolling into the center of Ramadi.–[wp_colorbox_media url=”http://www.cnn.com/2015/04/15/middleeast/iraq-isis/index.html” type=”iframe” hyperlink=”Source”]
