Meantime, the Iraqi security forces in Anbar province repulsed ISIS's attack on a security post about 160 kilometers to the West of al-Ramadi, killing one ISIS terrorist and injuring many others in fierce clashes.
The ISIS terrorists also tried to attack the security forces in Bou Ziyab and al-Jarishi regions, but they were beaten back by the Iraqi forces backed by the Iraqi army's artillery and fighter jets.
Six terrorists were killed and three others were wounded in the third attempt to attack the Iraqi forces' military positions.
