On Wednesday, Iraqi security forces (ISF) killed 20 ISIS members after they attempted to seize al-Tash, Five Kilo, Seven Kilo and al-Jamea areas of Ramadi city in the province of Anbar.

According to Iraqi media, ISIS attacked the city earlier on Wednesday but failed to consolidate their gains and ISF, backed up by attack helicopters, retook the areas. Some 20 ISIS pickup trucks were reported in the city.

33 civilians were injured as a result of the clashes.

However, local sources report that the security operation is underway in Ramadi and some militants remain there.

They haven’t repelled or completely repelled the ISIS assault. ISIS has in fact captured some neighbourhoods, captured more than tens of Iraqi soldiers and is set to execute them as they usually do. This attack again seemed to be planned at a time when Iraqi forces and the PMU are focusing on the Kurds, Hawijjah and Syria.

The US/CIA has a heavy hand here and provided the intel for ISIS, Pentagon better smarten up before they get outmaneuvered and start losing funding for troops. The US will be told putting private PMCs in charge of all battles and wars of this nature, seems like the CIA will win this one from them. The we will see these types of wars for the rest of our lives no regular armies left just private armies.
