ISIS attacks kill 31 Iraqi soldiers in two days

ERBIL, Kurdistan Region—The Islamic State (ISIS) has shelled Anbar provincial capital Ramadi on Wednesday and killed 13 Iraqi soldiers. 

According to Al Jazeera in the village of Abu Risha north of Ramadi ISIS artillery killed four soldiers. 

In the eastern suburb of Shujirayah nine soldiers from the Iraqi Army's 8th Division were killed by shelling when they attempted to force some 300 ISIS members from the area. That area is believed to be the last foothold ISIS retains in the city. 

This attack comes after a deadlier attack on Tuesday. Tuesday's attack killed 18 Iraqi soldiers in a suicide car bomb attack north of Ramadi. 

Iraq declared that Ramadi was successfully liberated from the group late last December. While ISIS were forced from the center by elite Iraqi special forces with close US air support militants still cling to some of the city's suburbs.

Looks like Ramadi is still not liberated lol the Iraqi army is a joke even the YBS militia of the yezidis are more effective I'M JUST SAYING.

they suffered several suicide attacks inside the city last week which left dozens of soldiers dead, they have daily clashes yet they claimed the city was liberated

Some militants still hide and cling to the city as they know they cannot retreat or flee a battle because they know that ISIS will brutally kill them if they do flee or retreat from Ramadi. ISIS already has killed some fighters from Ramadi who managed to flee/retreat to Mosul.
