A week of heavy fighting between security forces and the Islamic State of Iraq and al-Sham (ISIS) militants in the Ramadi area of Anbar province killed 30 police, a top officer said on Monday. Parts of the capital of Anbar province have been out of government control since early 2014, and ISIS seized more territory in the Ramadi area this month. Major attacks also hit other areas of Anbar last week, including three suicide bombings claimed by ISIS targeting the Iraqi side of the Trebil border crossing with Jordan on Saturday that officials said killed seven people.
