OH MIGHTY ISIS!:

Iraq retakes large part of Ramadi from IS -- officials (AFP, December 8, 2015)

Iraqi security forces on Tuesday recaptured a large area on the southwestern side of Ramadi from the Islamic State, which overran the city in May, officials said.


Retaking the al-Tameem area from IS is a significant breakthrough for Iraqi forces, which have been fighting for months to secure territory around Ramadi, a major city west of Baghdad and the capital of the vast Anbar province.
