Iraqi forces make gains against Daesh [ISIS] in Ramadi

Iraqi forces captured Al-Tameem district in street fights against Daesh forces on 8 December 2015.

Ramadi had been surrounded by Iraqis by 27 November 2015. Daesh fighters inside the city are putting up desperate resistance but have virtually no chances of ultimately succeeding in defense of Ramadi.

    • That is true, but thing is, control over territory and status of the “state” gives Daesh much stronger legitimacy in the minds of jihadists worldwide. Without territory, which of course would be a result of military disaster, Daesh’s appeal would seriously decrease. It became what it is today when it managed to conquer large territory.
