Iraqi Forces Liberate village of Albu Sina', South of Fallujah and began to attack ISIL militants from at least 5 directions.

Iraqi Troops now marching on the Western frontlines of the city to retake Falahat and Subayhat villages from the militants.

On the outskirts of Falluja Iraqi security forces and tribal forces are Clashing with ISIL to win back two strategic regions in the Western part of the city of Fallujah.

It is believed that elite Iraqi counter terrorism troops are now within two miles of the centre of Fallujah, allowing more civilians escape.

Iraq's Defence ministry released footage late on Saturday showing the defence minister visiting the frontline in the battle for Fallujah, which has been held by Islamic State (ISIS , ISIL , IS and Daesh) group militants for more than two years.

During his visit, Khalid al Obeidi said that the presence of civilians in the city has delayed the military's advance, as the goal was "to liberate Fallujah, not to harm its population."

Humanitarian conditions for about 50,000 people trapped inside Fallujah are increasingly dire, according to the United Nations.

Iraqi government forces on Sunday cleared territory in the Al A'toor neighbourhood won back from the Islamic State group on the southeastern edge of Fallujah.

They pushed deeper into the city about 40 miles (65 kilometres) west of Baghdad after a protracted fight this week, under cover of heavy airstrikes.

Iraqi government forces on Sunday cleared more territory won back from the Islamic State group on the southeastern edge of Fallujah, held by the militants for more than two years. They pushed deeper into the city about 40 miles (65 kilometres) west of Baghdad after a protracted fight this week, under cover of heavy airstrikes by the US-led coalition.

Humvees drove through the Al A'toor neighbourhood and Iraqi troops could be seen entering tunnels created by the Islamic State group, as plumes of thick smoke rose in the distance.

Half the prewar population has been displaced and many have died due to sieges by one side or the other as food became another weapon of war.
