Iraq army, tribes join fight against al-Qaeda forces

Published: 01.03.14, 16:51 / Israel News

Sunni Muslim tribesmen backed by Iraqi troops fought al-Qaeda-linked militants for control of Iraq's western province of Anbar on Friday in a critical test of strength for the Shi'ite-led government of Prime Minister Nuri al-Maliki.

 

Dressed in black and waving al Qaeda flags, hundreds of Islamist insurgents using machine guns and pick-up trucks mounted with anti-aircraft guns battled tribesmen in the streets of the city of Ramadi on Friday, witnesses, security officials and tribal sources said. (Reuters)
