20 ISIS Turbans all that remains in Anbar

Anbar (IraqiNews.com) The number of remaining Islamic State militants is estimated at no more than twenty members at the group’s stronghold in western Anbar, an official said.

“The families that remained in Rawa are around 300 families. News that mentioned that they are besieged to be used at human shields are untrue as the militants are in defeated,” Hussein al-Okaidi, mayor of Rawa told Baghdad Today.

“After the IS blew up the only bridge in Rawa, security troops had to look for a way to the town through al-Rummana,” he added.

Okaidi indicated presence of “desert roads and island that stretches out to the Syrian land. But there should be redeployment and tightening control on land before starting the last battle to clear Rawa of the militants.”

“The remaining number of militants in Rawa are no more than 20, while the rest fled toward Syria,” he added.
