Iraqi forces close in on final Daesh position in Ramadi:

Iraqi troops have pushed deeper toward the last remaining district in Ramadi held by Daesh militants, an army spokesperson told Reuters on Saturday.

This is part of an operation launched last Tuesday night aimed at expelling Daesh from the city, which the group has controlled since May. If successful, recapturing Ramadi will be one of the most important victories for Iraqi armed forces since Daesh swept across a third of the country in 2014.
