The Iraqi Army, backed by the Popular Mobilization Forces (Hashd Al-Sha’abi) and Federal Police, continued their large-scale Fallujah offensive tonight, striking the southern outskirts of the city while the Islamic State of Iraq and Al-Sham (ISIS) fighters attempt to beat back the government forces.

According to the Iraqi Ministry of Defense, the army and their allies are pushing north from Al-Nu’aymiyah towards the Al-Shuhada District of Fallujah; this is likely to be the entry point for the government forces. In the coming hours; if the Islamic State terrorists are unable to maintain their last line of defense in Al-Nu’aymiyah, then it is very likely that the Iraqi Army and their popular committes will enter Fallujah on Saturday.
