https://youtu.be/0WcO5xQgFIA Iraqi government has dispatched military reinforcements towards Ramadi, aiming to retake control of the city which fell in the hands of the Islamic State group. Around 500 soldiers and civilians died in the bloody battle between the IS and the Iraqi army, as the IS went for the final push to capture the city on Friday. The loss of Ramadi was a stunning defeat for the Iraqi army as it fleed the battlefront even when the US was supporting them with air-support.
