Iraq: Two Iraqi army generals killed in Anbar province

BAGHDAD (AA):  The Iraqi Joint Operations Command announced that two army generals were killed on Thursday during military operations against Daesh near Ramadi, the regional capital of Anbar province.

An army spokesman told Anadolu Agency that Brigadier General Sefin Abdul Mejid, chief of the army’s 10th division, and Major General Abdurrahman Abu Reghif, vice chief of Anbar military operations, were killed in a suicide attack near Ramadi.

Daesh supporters shared a statement on social media saying the militant group has claimed responsibility for the attack.

On Sunday, another senior army officer was injured in clashes near Ramadi.

Although Daesh lost several parts of Iraq’s Diyala, Nineveh and Saladin provinces, it remains in control of most of Anbar, including the city of Ramadi.

Iraq has plunged into a security vacuum since June 2014 when Daesh stormed the northern Iraqi city of Mosul and declared what it called a caliphate in parts of Iraq and Syria.
