Iran's top military official has congratulated the Muslim Ummah on the full liberation of the Iraqi city of Ramadi from the Takfiri Daesh terrorist group.

“The great victory of the Iraqi military and popular forces, including Shia and Sunni Muslims, … heralds more successes in the future,” Iranian Armed Forces' Chief of Staff Major General Hassan Firouzabadi said on Monday.

In a televised statement on Monday, Iraqi military spokesman Brigadier General Yahya Rasool declared that the city of Ramadi, the capital of the western province of Anbar, has been "fully liberated" from Daesh.

"Ramadi has been liberated and the armed forces of the counter-terrorism service have raised the Iraqi flag above the government complex," he said.

Ramadi fell into the hands of Daesh in May, months after the terrorist group overran territories in northern Iraq. The Iraqi forces have managed to liberate some key towns and villages from the grips of the Takfiri group including Tikrit and Baiji in Salahuddin Province.

Seizing control over Ramadi would prepare the ground for the long-anticipated offensive into Mosul, the largest city Daesh controls in the Arab country.

Firouzabadi also said resistance of foreign-backed Daesh commanders in the western city of Fallujah in Anbar will lead to no result.

The Iranian commander added that all Iraqis must unite in Fallujah to support the armed forces and volunteer fighters in the ongoing anti-terror operations in the city.

The operation is part of an all-out campaign launched by the Iraqi army on Tuesday to cleanse Anbar of Daesh militants.

The northern and western parts of Iraq have been plagued by violence ever since Daesh began an offensive through the Iraqi territory in June 2014. Army soldiers and Popular Mobilization Units are seeking to take back militant-held regions in joint operations.
