Iraqi forces battling near Tikrit also apparently have the help of Iranian Gen. Ghasem Soleimani, the commander of the elite Revolutionary Guard's Quds Force, who arrived there two days ago.

The powerful general has emerged as the chief tactician in Iraq's fight against the terrorist militants, working on the front lines alongside dozens of advisers from his country's Revolutionary Guard to direct Shiite fighters and government forces in the smallest details of some battles.

In the battle field Iraqi troops backed by popular forces continue marching in Salahuddin province on Monday and opened their path to the strategic city of Qaddesiya after breaking ISIL's fortified defensive positions.

The Iraqi army entered the Qaddesiya city in the Northern parts of Tikrit to tighten the siege of the ISIL forces in Salahuddin province.

Reports coming out of Tikrit city on Monday indicated that the Iraqi troops had driven out ISIL terrorists from Tikrit.

They used heavy artillery, mortars, tanks and short-range missiles during intensified clashes over the town of Al- Dour which is still under the control of the ISIL terrorists.

Thousands of government troops, Shiite and Sunni popular forces have started a major offensive in the Iraqi city of Samarra to oust the ISIL terrorists from the strategic province of Salahuddin, which includes the ancient city of Tikrit.
