Asharq Al-Awsat reports:

Iraqi forces claimed to have taken control of the main entrances of Fallujah, west of Baghdad, on Sunday, in preparation for plans to storm the city, following the failure of attempts to find peaceful solutions for the crisis in the province of Anbar.

Iraqi security forces began surrounding the city of Fallujah on Saturday in preparation for storming the city, while the ISIS stronghold in the industrial district was bombarded by the air force in order to weaken the group prior to the entry into the city, which the Al-Qaeda-affiliated group, the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS), has controlled for more than four months.
