Large Scale Military Operation Underway to Remove ISIS Militants From Iraq’s Anbar Province

A large scale military operation to remove ISIS militants from Iraq's western Anbar Province is underway. 

A military spokesman says the operation started at dawn Monday. 

He didn't say whether the U.S. led International Coalition is participating. 

He only mentioned government forces and allied Shiite and Sunni para military troops. 

This is not the first time the Iraqi government has tried to retake Anbar. 

Back in May, an operation to reclaim Ramadi was launched, but there has not been major progress on the ground since then.
