Iraqi forces launch offensive to recapture last ISIS-held district of Rawa

ERBIL, Iraq - Iraqi forces launched an offensive on Saturday to capture Rawa, the last remaining town under Islamic State control.
Two infantry divisions and Sunni tribal forces are participating in the offensive to recapture Rawa, a small town on the bank of the Euphrates, and its surrounding areas along the border with Syria.
Last week, Iraqi forces recaptured the larger town of al-Qaim, leaving just a few small pockets of land in Islamic State's hands.
