US Department of Defense spokesman Col. Steve Warren stated that the use of suicide car bombs followed by an infantry assault is now a "standard tactic" for the Islamic State, also known as Daesh.

The Haditha attacks follow significant gains by the Iraqi and allied forces in retaking the Islamic State-held city of Ramadi.

On Sunday, Lt. Gen. Abdul-Ghani Asadi, commander of Iraq’s anti-terrorism contingent, told Sputnik that the parts of Ramadi still held by Daesh should be liberated by Iraqi forces in the coming week.
