The Iraqi armed forces began an operation, earlier on Tuesday, to liberate the center of Ramadi from Daesh terrorists, who have occupied the city since May. According to Iraqi intelligence, around 250 to 300 radical Islamist militants have captured the city center.
"Iraqi Air Force, coalition aircraft, police from Anbar Province and representatives of tribes are supporting the offensive," Abdullah said.
Abdullah stressed that the Iraqi Army was aware of the whereabouts of civilians and the location of terrorist positions.
Daesh is a terrorist organization outlawed in many countries including Russia. The US-led coalition launched aerial operations against the militants in Iraq in 2014.
