The Iraqi military declared on Dec. 28 that it had retaken the city of Ramadi, one of the largest cities held by the Islamist militant group Daesh (ISIL).

Daesh captured Ramadi, located on the Euphrates River about 55 miles west of Baghdad, in May 2015. The Iraqi army began efforts to retake the city in November with help from US coalition air strikes.

Iraqi officials have said that the city of Mosul, the largest Daesh-controlled city in Iraq, is the next target in the fight against Daesh.
