CNN reported:

Iraq’s military abandoned a strategically important base in Anbar province after heavy fighting with ISIS militants, provincial security force sources told CNN on Monday.

The base outside the city of Hit was one of the Shiite-led government’s few remaining military outposts in Anbar, a predominantly Sunni province that has increasingly fallen under ISIS control.

It is a key control point for roads running through the region.

Despite the loss, the Iraqi military still controls the Ayn al-Asad military base, which helps defend Iraq’s second-largest dam.
