In a new photo report purportedly released by the Islamic State, ISIS militants are shown repelling the "Rafidi" Iraqi Army from their strongholds in Abu Shuwayh and Umm As-Sijan villages, northwest of Shura. The photo report was released on November 2 on ISIS terrorist channels. An accompanying description reads: "Repelling #Rafidi Army and Militias Attacks on Abu Shuwayh and Umm As-Sijan Villages Northwest of #Shora Town." The photo report comes from "Wilayat Dijlah," Iraq, the ISIS-occupied and named region near the Tigris River.
