Terrorists fired the so-called Jhannam (Hell) missiles on several areas in the town, where five civilians, including women and children, were killed in these strikes.
Sputnik obtained an exclusive video taken by an Al-Khalidiya citizen revealing the aftermath of the Daesh missile attacks on the town.
The footage features a ruined apartment building with a broken roof which was struck by a missile.
Also, the video shows a pick-up truck in which seriously injured locals were rushed to the local hospital Al-Rashid.
Rutbah, as well as many other cities in western and northern Iraq including Mosul, the country’s second largest city, were seized by the terror group Daesh, which is outlawed in Russia and many other countries, in 2014.
Since last year, the Iraqi army, supported by a US-led international coalition as well as Kurdish forces, has managed to retake some territories occupied by Daesh terrorists, including the city of Ramadi, capital of Anbar Province.
