Iraq sends reinforcements

Iraqi forces dispatched additional reinforcements Wednesday to capture Ramadi after seizing strategic parts of the city from the Islamic State a day earlier, dealing a blow to the militant group. Maj. Gen. Ismail al-Mahlawi, head of military operations for Anbar province, of which Ramadi is the capital, said Iraqi forces were preparing to push deeper into the city. “We are preparing to start a large military operation to liberate the rest of Ramadi,” he said Wednesday, speaking by telephone. Brig. Gen Ahmed al-Belawi, a commander of police forces in Anbar, said by telephone that more policemen have been dispatched to the area”.
