Iraqi troops continued the fight against ISIS militants in the northern Iraqi city of Tikrit on Saturday.

They are trying to recapture the city from the militants who seized it last summer during its advance across northern and western Iraq.

Iraqi soldiers could be seen firing a missile launcher, machine guns and mortars toward what are believed to be ISIS terrorist’s positions in Tikrit.

The battle for Tikrit is seen as a key step toward eventually driving the ISIS group from Iraq's second largest city Mosul, which is further north.
