Iraqi Forces Have 'Fully Cleared' ISIS from Fallujah

Iraqi forces claim they have re-taken the key city of Fallujah from ISIS fighters in an announcement on Sunday.  

"Today the commander of Fallujah operations Lieutenant General Abdelwahab al-Saadi announced that the city of Fallujah had been cleared after counter-terrorism forces (CTS) took control of the Jolan neighborhood," the force's spokesman, Sabah al-Noman said.

"Jolan was Daesh's last stronghold in the city and Fallujah is now free of the threat posed by Daesh terrorists," he said.  "It did not take more than two hours for CTS to retake Jolan. Daesh did not fire a single bullet.  This proves that Daesh was defeated even before our forces got there."

A U.S. spokesperson said that there is still more work to do.  

"We still have an ongoing fight northwest of Fallujah. We never made central Fallujah the ultimate goal of our operation ... the aim is to clear the whole area," the spokesman said.
