Fallujah, Iraq—Iraqi pro-government forces, consisting of special forces, soldiers, police, militia forces and pro-government tribesmen, advance toward the city on May 23 as part of a major assault to retake Fallujah from the Islamic State militant group (ISIS). Prime Minister Haider al-Abadi announced the start of operations in the middle of the night, following weeks of escalating violence and bombings by ISIS that have killed over a hundred people and wounded many more. Fallujah was the scene of deadly battles during the U.S. occupation and is likely to prove a tough fight for government forces.
