A large Daesh column has been annihilated west of Falldushi, in the Fallujah area; another success for the Iraqi forces and their Fallujah offensive.

Attack helicopters used rockets and missiles to destroy the vehicles and inflict heavy manpower losses on the headchoppers.

However, there appears to be some uncertainty as to who carried out this attack – the Iraqi Army claims that they had to do the job themselves because the US refused.

Victory has many fathers but defeat is an orphan, as someone once quipped…..

According to the Pentagon the attacks killed up to 250 militants of the Caliphate and up to 40 wheeled vehicles.

In general, this attack is reminder in miniature of the “Highway of Death” during the retreat of Iraqi forces from Kuwait in 1991.
