    At least five people were killed and 22 more wounded after Daesh terrorists resumed missile attacks on the town of Al-Khalidiya in western Iraq.

    Daesh terrorists have resumed missile attacks on the town of Al-Khalidiya in western Iraq's Anbar province, killing at least five people and wounding 22 more, according to Sputnik's Arabic edition

    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.

    Meanwhile, it was reported that the Iraqi army had begun an offensive in Anbar Province to liberate the town of Rutbah, which is controlled by Daesh terrorists.

    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.
