BAGHDAD: Iraqi forces retook the greater part of the state’s biggest refinery from Islamic State on Saturday, security authorities said, switching picks up by the militants who seized parts of the sprawling complex this week.

The extremists assaulted Iraq’s Baiji refinery a week prior by impacting through the security border around it and assuming control of the area, including stockpiling tanks.

A representative for Iraq’s counter-terrorism powers told media that troops ensuring the refinery had now retaken most offices, albeit there were still few amount of radicals left on the site.

“We hope to recapture full control inside several hours,” Sabah al-Noamani said.

“The risk is still there, however the situation is better than yesterday,” common committee part Sabah Karhout told media.
