Iraqi forces in fierce battles with IS in Ramadi

Iraqi counter-terrorism forces are seen in Ramadi's Dhubbat neighberhood, adjacent to Hoz, on December 25, 2015, as fighting to reclaim territory from Islamic State jihadists continuedDie-hard jihadists made a desperate last stand Saturday in Ramadi’s former government complex, the main remaining target of Iraqi forces reconquering the city they lost in May. After a push on Tuesday that broke the Islamic State group’s defences around the city centre, government forces were slowed by snipers, booby traps, roadside bombs and suicide attackers. Initial hopes of a quick victory faded, but Iraq’s elite counter-terrorism service (CTS) and the army have advanced steadily through the devastated capital of Anbar province.
