Iraqi Troops Push Into Center of Fallujah in Fight Against ISIS“The Iraqis announced today that they had seized the Fallujah municipal building in roughly the center of Fallujah,” said Colonel Chris Garver, the U.S. military spokesman in Baghdad. The push into the city has been conducted by forces from Iraq’s elite Counterterrorism Service, federal police and military commandos. Garver said their offensive into the center of Fallujah on Friday “was enabled by multiple Coalition strikes to destroy heavy machine guns that were impeding the progress of the advance.” In the last seven days, the coalition has conducted 17 airstrikes inside the city.
