Battles between the Shia militia Al-Abbas Combat Division (ACD) and ISIS continue in the outskirts of the towns of Dujeil and Balad, located, respectively, around 75 and 100 kilometers to the north of Baghdad.

Fighters from this newly formed military group were transported from the southern city of Karbala on Friday, November 28 and deployed on several fronts against ISIS in northern and western Iraq.
