Anbar and Salahaddin have been two of the three provinces where the Islamic State (IS) has retained its offensive capabilities. Over the last several months IS has been attempting big pushes in the former especially in and around the governorate’s capital Ramadi. In the second week of April it launched a major campaign in that area. In Salahaddin, IS tried to make up for its loss of Tikrit by assaulting the Baiji Refinery. IS also launched a major wave of car bombings in Baghdad. The result was a major spike in casualties in Iraq.
