London: Iraqi troops have retaken the key base in Ramadi from Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS), said officials.
According to The Guardian, the progress in the ground offensive launched last week has been slow with the militants entrenched in a city that remains home to thousands of civilians trapped in the midst of the battle.
Sabah al-Numani, a spokesman for the government forces, said that ISIS has been defeated in Ramadi.
He said that now they would clear possible pockets in the city.
However, a US defence official said on Sunday that it was not clear whether the complex had been regained.
He said that they are not able to confirm if they have cleared the government center.
