Video footage shows scores of ISIS bodies in Baiji

ERBIL, Kurdistan Region — Iraqi forces alongside Shiite Hashd al-Shaabi militias have cleared the town of Baiji in Salahadin province of the Islamic State, said a Hashd al-Shaabi spokesperson in a press conference Tuesday.
 
“Bomb disposal teams and Iraqi joint forces have begun defusing landmines and clearing the town of the group’s remaining elements,” said Karim Nuri, a spokesperson from the Hashd al-Shaabi.
 
“There are still ISIS elements inside Baiji ambushing our forces to halt us from any further advance and we ought to take them away,” Nuri added.
 
The Hashd al-Shaabi released a video via social media purportedly showing Iraqi forces partially in control of Iraq’s largest oil refinery in Baiji, and ISIS corpses in the streets.
 
Mohammed Mahmoud, the mayor of Baiji, told Rudaw on the same day the security situation in Baiji was partially stable and Iraqi joint forces have been clearing the town from ISIS militants.
 
The town was captured by ISIS in June, but the larger refinery facility, which is the biggest refinery in Iraq, remained under the control of the Iraqi army’s Golden Brigade special forces unit.

It is a fight which should have the support of helicopters to give cover this type of incursão.Esta war will take, and it seems most ground troops do not have any support helicopters and other weapons as necessa'rios this type of combat .It why isis terrorists use with frequency suicide bombers against terrestres.Infelizmente Western countries troops are not putting their war machine to support the heroic militias in the region.
