Iraqi forces retook territory from Daesh group east of Ramadi Saturday, in their first counterattack since the fall of the Anbar provincial capital a week ago, commanders said.

"Military operations to liberate Husaybah, seven kilometres (4.5 miles) east of Ramadi, have begun," a police colonel told AFP from the front.
