Iraq Situation Report: July 1, 2014

ISIS targeted the Samarra Askari Shrine in an effort to divert ISF resources from Tikrit or Baghdad.

Tribes in Haditha may be negotiating the peaceful occupation of the city by ISIS and other armed groups. Upon establishing control of Haditha, ISIS will likely attempt to seize control of Ramadi and declare total control over Anbar province.
