Iraqi general: Forces will retake western cities

Published: 01.05.14, 12:19 / Israel News

A senior Iraqi military commander said Sunday that it will take a few days to fully dislodge al-Qaeda-linked fighters from two key western cities.

 

Lt. Gen. Rasheed Fleih, who leads the Anbar Military Command, told the state television Sunday that "two to three days" are needed to push the terrorists out of Fallujah and parts of Ramadi. Fleih added that pro-government Sunni tribes are leading the operations while the army only is offering aerial cover and logistics on the ground. He didn't elaborate on the operations. (AP)
