BAGHDAD (Sputnik) — The Iraqi Army has managed to hold off a Daesh (ISIS) attack near Habbaniyah and Razzaza west of Baghdad, the Iraqi Army said in a press release Wednesday.
"A group of militants tried to approach several checkpoints between the towns of Habbaniyah and Razzaza, detonating several car bombs on a bridge and attacking several posts on Wednesday morning. Our forces have defeated the attack," the Iraqi Armed Forces' press release said.
