Iraqi Forces Try to Retake Fallujah From ISIS
It's slow going. Iraq's efforts to expel extremists from the "city of mosques" have thus far left them at the outskirts. As of late this week, at least 130 Iraqi soldiers - a mix of Shiite units, military and police - had been killed, along with dozens of ISIS fighters. In a bid to attract local Sunni support, and heighten sectarian tensions, ISIS is spouting anti-Shiite slogans. Iraqis, meanwhile, say they've eased their push to regain the city center, hoping the 50,000 civilians reportedly trapped there will have a chance to flee.
