Iraqi analysts say recent gains against the ISIL Takfiri militants are the Iraqi army’s achievements and have nothing to do with the US strategy, Press TV reports.

“The victories achieved by the army and volunteer forces assure that the advances were made by Iraqi forces. Saying that the US-led coalition is the reason behind those victories is wrong,” Ihsan al-Shamri, a political analyst, told Press TV reporter in the Iraqi capital, Baghdad.

“For the advances on the ground and the facts we are seeing on the ground assure that the cooperation between Iraqi forces lead to the defeat of ISIL in some areas,” he added.

On Monday, Iraqi army forces liberated as many as 16 villages near the western city of Ramadi from the control of Takfiri ISIL militants.

“The US wants to show that it has gathered 40 countries and created a coalition to defeat ISIL and wants to show that this coalition achieved the victories. I believe that the resistance, volunteers, and Iraqi forces are the ones achieving advances. ISIL was defeated by Iraqi forces only,” said political analyst, Hamed Hamrani.

On Sunday, Iraqi military forces reportedly advanced to the center of Baiji as part of efforts to put an end to the ISIL Takfiris' siege of an oil refinery on the outskirts of the strategic northern city.

Nazem Robii, journalist, said, “The volunteer forces and Iraqi army achieved great victory with the help of neighboring countries. This shows that we are not in need for the coalition forces. Many here say that the real advances witnessed on the ground have been achieved through the cooperation between Iraqi army and volunteer forces.”

The ISIL terrorists are in control of large areas across eastern Syria and northern and western Iraq.

The Iraqi army has so far managed to make numerous gains in the fight against the ISIL militants, pledging to continue the battle against the extremist group.

The ISIL militants have been carrying out horrific acts of violence, including public decapitations, against Iraqi communities such as Shias, Sunnis, Kurds and Christians.
