IS Attacks Baiji Refinery

By John Lee.

Islamic State militants (IS, ISIS, ISIL) breached the security perimeter around Baiji [Beiji, Bayji) refinery on Monday, but were repelled by security forces and coalition airstrikes.

The 20-square-kilometer site was under siege for five months last summer, until its liberation in November.

According to Reuters, provincial council member Khazaal Hammad said the situation was now under control, although the refinery is within range of fire from outside the perimeter of the complex.
