ISIL Terrorists Ordered to Kill Fallujah Residents in Disguise
The ISIL militants were also ordered to send their families to safe places outside Fallujah city, the Arabic-language media outlets reported on Wednesday.
The ISIL terrorists have been instructed to disguise as Iraqi volunteer forces (Hashd al-Shaabi) and massacre the Iraqi civilians whom they have released from Fallujah prisons while chanting Hashd al-Shaabi slogans.
The terrorist group has also ordered its members in the directive to take videos and photographs from these fabricated and fake scenes and release them on the social media.
The Takfiri terrorist group has also threatened that any of its members that would cooperate with Hashd al-Shaabi will be executed.
Earlier on Wednesday, provincial officials announced that a large number of Iraqi families who had been used as human shield by the ISIL in the surrounding areas of the Fallujah city managed to escape from the custody of the Takfiri terrorists.
“Over 100 Iraqi families escaped from al-Nassaf and al-Hassi regions to the West and South of Fallujah city,” the Arabic-language media outlets quoted Head of Anbar Provincial Council’s Security Committee Raje al-Issawi as saying.
He reiterated that the Iraqi citizens were transferred by the Iraqi security forces to Fallujah refugee camps in Ameriya and Khalediya regions.
On Tuesday, Iraqi military forces managed to push ISIL militants back from agricultural areas outside Fallujah as they continue their military operation to retake Iraq’s Western city.
Lt. Ahmed Mahdi Salih, a commander in Iraqi federal police participating in the battle, said that fierce battles were taking place in the Eastern vicinity of Fallujah which the militants are using as a supply line, Rudaw news website reported
The operation is being conducted under the command of Lt. Gen. Abdul Wahab Al Sa’adi who pointed out that tough terrains of the battlefields, the risk of civilian casualties and the improvised explosive devices (IEDs) ISIL has planted in and around the city are obstacles to a swift victory, which is why they will begin the offensive by surrounding and bombarding ISIL positions.
While Iraqi military and paramilitary forces have had the city encircled for over a year this is their first serious attempt to recapture the city and force the militants to retreat from the area.
ISIL captured Fallujah back in January 2014 making it the first and longest city it has been controlling in Iraq.
“On Tuesday morning, the Iraqi security and volunteer forces managed to fully liberate al-Karama town located 13 kilometers to the East of Fallujah,” Commander of Fallujah operations said.
Al-Karama is an important and strategic city near Fallujah and is considered as an entrance gate to the city of Fallujah.
Reports on the battlefields also have confirmed that the Iraqi forces advanced in al-Maqala and al-Hamra towns and heavy clashes broke out between the government forces and the ISIL terrorists.
Late in April, the Iraqi army, backed by popular forces, gained the control of a district in the city of al-Karama in Western Anbar province. The army units regained control of al-Roza district in Central al-Karama, deemed as an important stronghold of the terrorists in the city of al-Karama.
