Military personnel in Iraq have dropped leaflets to residents in Ramadi telling them that they must evacuate within 72 hours.
Iraqi military are preparing to conduct a major military operation in the ISIS controlled city, an anonymous soldier told Reuters.
“It is an indication that a major military operation to retake the city center will start soon,” the source said.
Last week Iraqi security forces said they had made advances on two fronts in Ramadi, clearing Islamic State militants from a key military command base and the sprawling neighborhood of al-Taamim on the western rim of the city.
Iraqi intelligence estimates the number of Islamic State fighters that are entrenched in the centre of Ramadi at 250 to 300.
