baghdad - The Iraqi army has used the definitive attack on Hawija. The city north of Baghdad is one of the last two bolts of Islamic State in Iraq.

The army fled to Hawija on Wednesday after it got Rashad's strategic air force base two days ago. This base is about 30 kilometers south of the city. The terrorists of IS used the field as a training camp and place to supply material, according to the Iraqi army. The army started the haze of Hawija on September 21st.

After Hawaii, Islamic State left another area in Iraq, a strip of land in the west, near the border with Syria. The collapse of the so-called caliphate of IS was finally formed in July with the fall of Mosul. During the refurbishment of this city, the army received support from American soldiers. The battle for Mosul lasted for a total of nine months.
