RAMADI – Iraqi security forces on Tuesday recaptured a large area on the southwestern side of Ramadi from the Islamic State group, which overran the city in May, officials said.

Retaking the Al-Tameem area from IS is a significant victory for Iraqi forces, who have been fighting for months to secure territory around Ramadi, a major city west of Baghdad and the capital of the vast Anbar province.
