Iraqi army forces backed by pro-government tribal fighters and U.S.-led coalition air power have overrun the city of Rawa in Iraq’s western Anbar province, an Iraqi military source said Friday.

Axar.az reports citing AA that Rawa, located roughly 230 kilometers west of provincial capital Ramadi, had been considered one of the Daesh terrorist group’s last remaining holdouts in Iraq.

“Army units and tribal fighters are in the process of storming the city,” Army Major-General Qassem al-Mohammadi told Anadolu Agency.

According to al-Mohammadi, coalition warplanes and Iraqi military helicopters are providing air support for Iraqi army units operating in and around Rawa, which was captured by Daesh in mid-2014.

The nearby city of Al-Qaim was also recaptured by the Iraqi army late last month following a weeks-long campaign.
