A US plot to evacuate Daesh leaders from the strategic city of Ramadi in central Iraq has reportedly been disclosed by a volunteer forces commander.

An Iraqi volunteer forces commander has revealed US plans to evacuate Daesh (ISIL/ISIS) leaders from the central Iraqi city of Ramadi, according to the Iranian news agency FARS.

The disclosure comes as the Iraqi army and popular troops are attempting to secure victory over the jihadist group in Ramadi.

FARS quoted Imam Khamenei Battalion Commander Haidar al-Hosseini al-Ardavi as saying that "the delay in operations to liberate the cities of Ramadi and Fallujah in Anbar province has been the result of US interference."

"It seems that the US intends to evacuate the ISIL terrorist group's infamous ringleaders secretly (with helicopters) from Ramadi to unknown places," he was quoted by FARS as saying.

His remarks came amid efforts by Iraqi security forces to continue gaining ground in Ramadi's central areas, where hundreds of Daesh terrorists are trapped under siege.

On Wednesday, it was reported that the Iraqi troops had managed to make significant advances in Ramadi after they reached the Tigris River and started entering the city center after crossing the al-Khor Bridge.

In another development, the army's special forces attacked Daesh hideouts in the al-Zubat neighborhood of the city, and started liberating government buildings in the al-Hoz district of Ramadi.

Earlier this week, Iraqi Army Chief of Staff Lieutenant General Othman al-Ghanimi said his troops needed only days to completely drive Daesh out of Ramadi, which has been under Daesh control since May 2015.

    vendor, Lately, most Daesh leaders were from the Caucasus and Central Asian countries. Russian is more frequently heard over the radio com than Arabic.

    nshahhsh, Better to get the evidence first: if the copters are shot down, Obama will deny everything, and instead cry "Russian aggression"...
  • Syria Forever
    The question is; "How much longer that will go on? When will Russia show all the evidence to the UNSC?!" I know the UN is just another proxy of the NATO-crime syndicate but something have to be done!! The people in the west have to know which kind of criminals they paying their taxes to!
  • Syria Forever
    The question is how much longer Russia will stay "aside"? When will Russia present all the evidence to the UNSC? It is time to end the NATO-crime syndicate!
  • choticastile

    vendor, that seems to be the case.
    It is time Russia and China make an end to the NATO-crime syndicate. And the people in the west have to learn which kind of criminals stealing their tax-money.

    US is the fifth column in the fight against terrorism.

    Syria Forever, Well I wish it was possible to do quickly but it is not that easy. This is just a phase and each move should be done carefully. One step, one punch, one round at a time.

    Ivan Zadorozhny, No they are not. They are the enemy.

    Why does this not surprise me! I could write a book here on how all this terrorism has come about, but it would be far quicker and simpler to understand by looking at an American blog site.

    So, anyone who really wishes to know why successive American governments have become puppets to the criminal/terrorist/globalist enterprise that is attempting to kill off Christianity in the Middle East while persecuting their own people at home for practising it and have aided and abetted the rise of Islam that ensures the death of Western citizens, and of those around the world, should tune into INFOWARS and Alex Jones.

    Sigraven, It would be satisfying to know that the end game is approaching but I believe it has some time to run out, especially in Europe whose 'leaders' still ally themselves with the globalists and refuse to admit that the game is up. If you take on board that much of the western population is still asleep to the lethal danger that lurks amongst all, and the indoctrination centers still have control of our children, then we have a long way to go before we can call a victory.

    Sputnik Readers!

    I'm interested in historical precedents and parallels here:

    Where and when have other nations in history made vague claims to be combating an enemy while at the same time secretly supporting that same enemy financially and militarily?

    Surely this can't be unprecedented!
  • in reply toMark Gewiss(Show commentHide comment)
    Mark Gewiss, It is done this way to bypass UNSC. This way no war is declared on any country but rather the US is fighting an enemy with no territory or legitimate government. The international law is bypassed, no Geneva convention is applicable. There was no need in the past to do this as the wars of the past were fought differently.
  • Mark Gewissin reply to (Show commentHide comment)
    vendor, ... your explanation makes perfect sense. In reality it is an undeclared war on Syria posing at first as a civil war and using a proxy/mercenary army... Still, is this unique? I think in the past whenever another nation backed the rebel faction in a civil war - like Napoleon iii's intervention in Mexico during the 19th century - they wouldn't also claim to be fighting the rebel faction as a ruse.

    Russia must relentlessly without fear or favour use the UN as a forum to totally expose all the double dealings the US does.

    Cowardly US Forces I new it!
