Iraqi security forces and allied Hashd Shaabi paramilitary militias have been fighting for months to retake control of key cities and towns in Anbar province since the IS militants seized most of the province and tried to advance towards capital Baghdad, but several counter attacks by security forces and Shiite militias have pushed them back.
