TOPSHOT - An Iraqi security forces member takes combat position as he carries a Rocket Propelled Grenade (RPG) in the rural town of Husayba, in the Euphrates Valley seven kilometres (4.5 miles) east of Ramadi, on December 7, 2015, where government forces have been closing on Islamic State (IS) group militants who seized the Anbar province's capital in May after a three-day blitz involving dozens of huge truck bombs. Iraqi security forces have fought their way to the outskirts of Ramadi, where they have been battling the IS jihadists in the past weeks.
