TEHRAN (Press Shia) – The Iraqi army’s fighter jets dropped thousands of leaflets in the western province of Anbar, warning the Daesh (ISIS or ISIL) terrorists to either surrender or die in the imminent battle with the army forces in the area.
In the leaflets, the Iraqi army has promised the residents of Qaim and Rawa in Anbar Province that the districts will be liberated from Daesh terrorists in the near future.
The army also urged the residents to stay away from the gatherings of militants and not allow the Daesh to use civilians as human shields, according to Iraqi News .
Iraqi army announced the total recapture of Annah, hours after recapturing neighboring Rayhana area, in September.
The Daesh terror group has held Anbar’s western towns of Qaim and Rawa since 2014 when it occupied one-third of Iraq to proclaim a so-called “Islamic Caliphate”.
Iraqi troops were able to return life back to normal in the biggest cities of Anbar including Fallujah, Ramadi, and others after recapturing them in 2015 and 2016.
Having recaptured Mosul and Tal Afar in Nineveh and Hawija, southwestern Kirkuk, Iraqi troops still have only western Anbar’s towns of Rawa and Qaim remain under the militant’s control.
