Fallujah clashes continue between Iraqi tribesmen, Daesh terrorists
Clashes between Iraqi tribesmen and Takfiri Daesh terrorists in the city of Fallujah continued on Saturday for a second day, as Iraq’s forces go on with the battle to rid the country of terrorists.
“Armed confrontations between the sons of the Fallujah tribes and the Daesh organization are continuing,” an army brigadier general said.
Fallujah, which lies about 50 kilometers (30 miles) west of the capital, Baghdad, is considered to be one of the two main strongholds of the Takfiri terrorists. The other city is Mosul in northern Iraq, which fell to the militants in the summer of 2014.
Current clashes are in the Jolan district in northwest Fallujah and Nazal in the center, the general said, adding that the army was shelling Daesh positions on the outskirts.
There have been casualties among both the tribesmen and the militants, the officer said, without giving a number.
