Islamist militants strengthen grip on Iraq's Fallujah

Published: 01.18.14, 12:56 / Israel News

Al-Qaeda and other insurgent groups have tightened their grip on Fallujah, defying the Shiite-led Iraqi government's efforts to persuade local tribesmen to expel them from the Sunni Muslim city, residents and officials say.


Despite an army siege, fighters and weapons have been flowing into the city. In an embarrassing setback for a state that has around a million men under arms, the al-Qaeda-linked Islamic State of Iraq and al-Sham (ISIS) and its tribal allies overran Fallujah and parts of the nearby city Ramadi on January 1.
