Iraqi army shells Fallujah to try to dislodge al-Qaeda

Published: 01.04.14, 13:28 / Israel News

The Iraqi army shelled the western city of Fallujah with mortar bombs overnight to try to wrest back control from Sunni Muslim militants and tribesmen, killing at least eight people, tribal leaders and officials said on Saturday.

 

Fallujah has been held since Monday by militants linked to al-Qaeda and by tribal fighters united in their opposition to Prime Minister Nuri al-Maliki, in a serious challenge to the authority of his Shiite-led government in Anbar province. Medical sources in Fallujah said another 30 people were wounded in shelling by the army. (Reuters)
