On Saturday, Iraqi security forces reported that ISIS militants had taken control of a portion of the Baiji [Bayji, Beiji] oil refinery.
Since then, security forces have driven the militants off of the oil refinery’s premises and are now searching the area for any remaining militants.
Over the past month, Baiji has been a flash point for multiple clashes between security forces and ISIS fighters. Baiji is considered one of the top producing oil fields in the country.
