Iraqi security forces have retaken a gas plant located to the south of the strategic city of Fallujah, which is held by the Takfiri Daesh terrorist group.

The gas plant in the al-Shuhada neighborhood in southern Fallujah was recaptured from the terrorists on Monday, Iraqi media reported.

The operation was part of a broader offensive, launched last month, by Iraqi government and volunteer forces to retake Fallujah, 65 kilometers (40 miles) west of the capital, Baghdad.

Daesh overran Fallujah in the western province of Anbar in January 2014, six months before the terror group proceeded with its offensive, taking more areas in Iraq.

The military has set up safe corridors for the civilians to get out before forces enter the city.

However, the Daesh terrorists are trying to prevent people from leaving Fallujah, sometimes even shooting departing individuals to death.

Reports said Monday that the city’s southern edge has been secured.

Earlier, the head of Iraq’s Popular Mobilization Units, Abu Mahdi al-Mohandis, announced that 47 villages near Fallujah had been liberated.
