Iraq Situation Report

Iraq Situation Report: June 21, 2014

ISIS took control of Rawa and Ana to block the ISF's freedom of movement in Anbar. The ISF will likely deploy Iraqi Shi'a militias to slow ISIS' advance. The Sadrist parade is a major show of force as the Sadrists position themselves as defenders of the Iraqi Shi’a. ISIS and JRTN have violently clashed in pockets of terrain in northern Iraq.
