In their first and biggest win over ISIS since its resurgence, Iraqi troops freed the Iraqi city of Ramadi from ISIS troops on Monday 28th December. The city was captured by ISIS militants early in 2015. The army began their operation to liberate Ramadi on 22nd December and after a week of continued struggle, Iraqi troops finally flew the national flag over the government complex at the centre of the city.

A visibly triumphant Iraq PM Haider al-Abadi announced that, “2016 will be the year of the big and final victory, when Daesh’s presence in Iraq will be terminated. We are coming to liberate Mosul and it will be the fatal and final blow to Daesh.” Mosul is the 2nd largest city of Iraq and lies between Ramadi and Baghdad. Winning back Ramadi gives Iraqi troops significant strategic advantage over ISIS.
