Report: Battle to dislodge ISIS from Iraq's Ramadi will take days

BAGHDAD - Government forces expect to dislodge Islamic State militants from the western Iraqi city of Ramadi within days, state TV said on Wednesday, citing army chief of staff Lt. General Othman al-Ghanemi.
If Ramadi is captured, it will be the second major city after Tikrit to be retaken from Islamic State in Iraq. It would provide a major psychological boost to Iraqi security forces after the militant group seized a third of Iraq, a major OPEC oil producer and U.S ally, last year."In the coming days will be announced the good news of the complete liberation of Ramadi," Iraqia TV cited the officer as saying.
