Iraq retakes Ramadi from Daesh [ISIS]

By 27 December 2015 Iraqi army has retaken most of Ramadi, including its central parts and governmental buildings. Daesh has lost the city, and now Iraqi army only has to clear remaining pockets of resistance which are not relevant in strategic terms and cannot survive for a long time.

Daesh captured Ramadi on 17 May 2015. The necessity to retake it has slowed Iraqi advance, the ultimate goal of which is to retake Mosul. The Baghdad government will pursue this objective in 2016.
