Video shows policemen flee Ramadi as ISIS press on its offensive

Published: Updated:

A YouTube video published on May 15 shows hundreds of policemen - wearing civilian clothes – leave the Iraqi city of Ramadi en masse as Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS) steamed ahead on its offensive to take the capital of the Anbar province.

In the video, a man was heard saying “man up, don’t leave,” and later he sarcastically said: “Escape, go to Baghdad.”
