    Defense Secretary Ash Carter told the Senate Armed Services Committee Wednesday that the U.S. is ready to provide more personnel and equipment to the Iraqi army to fight ISIS, NBC News reported. 

    "We won't hesitate to confront ISIS," Carter told the committee, which is holding a hearing on the U.S. strategy to counter ISIS.

    Iraqi forces advanced on Ramadi, the provincial capital of Anbar province, earlier this week, capturing a military operations center and a neighborhood on the outskirts of the city. Carter said the U.S. would provide attack helicopters and additional military advisers to help retake Ramadi.
