Iraq governor gives Anbar militants one-week ultimatum

Published: 02.08.14, 15:27 / Israel News

An Iraqi provincial governor Saturday gave militants controlling a city near Baghdad one week to surrender as government forces made steady progress in an effort to end a weeks-long crisis.


The Anbar governor's ultimatum was directed at anti-government fighters who have held Fallujah for more than a month. It comes amid a protracted surge in violence with security forces grappling with near-daily attacks nationwide in addition to the fighting in the western desert province. (AFP)
