Reconnaissance drones had detected preparations by the militants to target the military base with guided missiles, according to the source.

Recent news reports have said military reinforcements were sent to areas near those towns preparing for an invasion against IS.

and that Iraqi military aeroplanes dropped millions of messages on western Anbar telling civilians that liberation offensives were nearing, and urging people to stay away from militants’ locations.


The Iraqi Joint Operations Command has, meanwhile, declared that its coming battle would be in IS-held Hawija, southwest of Kirkuk.
